  • I'm really looking forward to the better TODO report! That's a reason to switch from using 'prove'. However, here was my first impression of 'runtests'. The first thing I did was try "-h" and then "--help" to compare the options it supports with prove. In both cases I got this cryptic result: Unknown option: h Cannot determine source for t at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/TAPx/Harness.pm line 608 t....

    • Sorry about the formatting of the previous post. The "Preview" had looked OK, but it got submitted as HTML when I meant plain text.

      One more point of feedback: To complete the passing TODO enhancement, it would be really nice to have the line numbers for these tests, like we do with failing tests. With just the test number alone, tests can still be a little challenging to track down, since test scripts don't often contain test numbers.

      • Thanks for your feedback. I'll be working on this. You'll have to talk to Schwern, the maintainer of Test::Simple [cpan.org], for the 'TODO line number' feature. I have no control over that since the TODO information is TAP and I merely parse the TAP.

        I should have another release out soon.
