Dist::Zilla::App::Command::xtest - run xt tests for your dist
Run xt tests for your distribution:
This runs with AUTHOR_TESTING and RELEASE_TESTING environment variables turned on, so it's like doing this:
export AUTHOR_TESTING=1 export RELEASE_TESTING=1 dzil build rsync -avp My-Project-Version/ .build/ cd .build; prove -l -r xt
Except for the fact it's built directly in a subdir of .build (like .build/ASDF123).
A build that fails tests will be left behind for analysis, and dzil will exit a non-zero value. If the tests are successful, the build directory will be removed and dzil will exit with status 0.
You can also use 'xt' as an alias for 'xtest':
If you provide one or more filenames on the command line, only those tests will be run (however deeply they are nested). Glob patterns may also work, if you protect it from your shell.
dzil xtest pod-spell.t dzil xtest 'dist*' # don't expand to dist.ini
There is no need to add anything to dist.ini -- installation of this module is sufficient to make the command available.
