( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear Monks,

I need to test a perl script which offers CLI functionality for some module.

I have discovered Test::Script and its script_fails() which is great.

BUT, I have noticed that in its synopsis it uses Test2::V0 as its general testing framework, And internally it depends on Test2::API. Unfortunately, I started this module some time ago and used Test::More. And I would not be happy changing horses mid-stream, as they say.

My questions are:

  1. Is there an alternative to script_fails() but without a Test2 (or any other Test[0-9]+ except Test::More) dependency?
  2. Is Test2 compatible with Test::More (can I just replace use Test::More and get on with it?)
  3. Test::Script's synopsis starts with:

    use Test2::V0; use Test::Script;

    I guess I have to start my tests in the same way and declare a dependency on Test2::V0 as well?

many thanks,

bw, bliako

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
