NAME ^

Test::NoXS - Prevent a module from loading its XS code

SYNOPSIS ^

 # Note: XS for Scalar::Util is actually in List::Util
 use Test::NoXS 'List::Util'; 
 
 eval "use Scalar::Util qw( weaken )";
 
 like( $@, qr/weak references/i, "Scalar::Util failed to load XS" );

 # Disable all XS loading
 use Test::NoXS ':all';

DESCRIPTION ^

This modules hijacks DynaLoader and XSLoader to prevent them from loading XS code for designated modules. This is intended to help test how modules react to missing XS, e.g. by dying with a message or by falling back to a pure-Perl alternative.

USAGE ^

Modules that should not load XS should be given as a list of arguments to use Test::NoXS. Alternatively, giving ':all' as an argument will disable all future attempts to load XS.

BUGS ^

Please report any bugs or feature requests using the CPAN Request Tracker web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Test-NoXS

When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired feature.
