  • I have had to hack something like this into Test::Harness before, and it was annoying. I haven't looked at TAP::Harness yet, so hopefully it is better.

    One thing I remember being particularly annoying... The harness shouldn't assume that it is running the test directly. The test may actually run on another host, and the stdout/stderr saved to a file on that host and then copied back and fed to the harness. I'm not saying ::Parallel needs to provide all that, but it should be fairly easy to do with a subclass or plugin or somesuch.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this works out. Hopefully I'll be able to change our test suite at $work to use it.
