Test::NoTabs - Check the presence of tabs in your project
Test::NoTabs lets you check the presence of tabs in your perl code.
It report its results in standard
use Test::NoTabs tests => 1; notabs_ok( 'lib/Module.pm', 'Module is tab free');
Module authors can include the following in a t/notabs.t and have
Test::NoTabs automatically find and check all perl files in a module distribution:
use Test::NoTabs; all_perl_files_ok();
use Test::NoTabs; all_perl_files_ok( @mydirs );
This module scans your project/distribution for any perl files (scripts, modules, etc) for the presence of tabs.
notabs_ok() to all perl files found in
@directories (and sub directories). If no <@directories> is given, the starting point is one level above the current running script, that should cover all the files of a typical CPAN distribution. A perl file is *.pl or *.pm or *.t or a file starting with
If the test plan is defined:
use Test::NoTabs tests => 3; all_perl_files_ok();
the total number of files tested must be specified.
Run a tab check on
$file. For a module, the path (lib/My/Module.pm) or the name (My::Module) can be both used.
Inspired by some code written by Paul Lindner.
Test::Strict was used as an example when creating this module and distribution.
Rick Myers and Emanuele Zeppieri also provided valuable feedback.
