  • I plead guilty. It was a severe case of cargo-cult coding at the time. I'll try and roll a new release for you, as soon as I can.

      That would be lovely, but don't feel too bad. I just released a new version of Test::JSON last night to fix the same issue :) There are lots and lots of test modules which have this issue and it's such a common anti-pattern that it's tough to blame anyone. Plus, at the time you wrote Test::XML, Test::Builder was still a singleton. How were you to know that the interface would have to change? (Er, or a subtle change in behavior, actually).

      When I get some free time, I'm going to patch up Test::Builder to get around this issue. Meanwhile, "best practices" for test module authors should probably be published somewhere.

      • Sorry for the delay, but Test::XML 0.08 [] is now up, which fixes this issue. If you have any further issues, please let me know!
        • Given that we use your module quite heavily hear at work, I appreciate this! Thanks :)
