  • I started writing tests for some code here at work, and it's really really helped. It's also kind of addictive. The more you write, the better you feel about your code. I find that Test::More and Test::Harness together make for a very nice testing environment, as well.


  • ... did you find any bugs with your tests?


    • Not that I can recall, but much of the test suite would have failed if not for detection of problems in my previous one-off tests (I wrote a lot of one-liners while working on the port).

      These modules have all been around so long (most of them for upwards of 6 years) that the bugs in them are few and far between. I am changing very little of the modules; most of the bugs will have to do with my ported support functions (for time conversions, GUSI replacement functions, etc.) and various unique interactions
