I never really understood the point of use_ok(). If a use fails it'll throw an exception. The use_ok() function doesn't seem to add any value to that. Someone please tell me if I'm missing something.

Its a genuine bug that Test::Able::Role doesn't like planning. Please file that in RT. I've already fixed it and I'll release tomorrow. Thanks!

Test::Able v0.05 should now be on a CPAN mirror near you. Test::Able is "An xUnit style testing framework inspired by Test::Class and built using Moose."

Some of the more interesting recent changes are:

  • Dumped sub attrs and sub name method decoration.
  • Added moose-like method declaration.
  • Added plan failure handling at the method level.

Your idea for detecting accidental overrides seems overly complex. How about just comparing what is meant to be overridden to what Class::Sniff->overridden says has been.

I tripped on this a couple years ago. It wasn't a show-stopper and I wasn't sure it was actually a bug at the time.

I can't think of a reason not to. If only one other person benefits its worth it. The fact that it is hard to find things on the CPAN is a real problem but that's more of an infrastructure issue.

Like xUnit and Moose? Check out Test::Able. Its meta-riffic!

You could just make it configurable and give it a decent default. This particular piece of functionality seems like it could be good for Perl::Critic as well.
