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:
- Is there an alternative to script_fails() but without a Test2 (or any other Test[0-9]+ except Test::More) dependency?
- Is Test2 compatible with Test::More (can I just replace use Test::More and get on with it?)
Test::Script's synopsis starts with:
I guess I have to start my tests in the same way and declare a dependency on Test2::V0 as well?
