Oracle gem of the day: TAP compliant testing in PL/SQL

[ #30641 ]

This is my own personal test framework for testing PL/SQL modules. It's been around since before TAP had a name, actually. In the past I have built a public test subroutine right into packages which I then call from a short wrapper SQL*Plus script for testing. (I usually call the wrapper script t.sql, so I can test with three keystrokes. :) ) At times I've found it better to put the tests into the t.sql script itself.

Maybe somebody can clean this up and make something better out of it.

Note that IS is a reserved word in SQL, so I couldn't name a routine is within the T package. And so I named it tis: name of the package + "is", or "tis" if you like to use older English and sound like you're reciting the Night before Christmas. :)
