NAME ^

Test::LeakTrace - Traces memory leaks

VERSION ^

This document describes Test::LeakTrace version 0.14.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Test::LeakTrace;

    # simple report
    leaktrace{
        # ...
    };

    # verbose output
    leaktrace{
        # ...
    } -verbose;

    # with callback
    leaktrace{
        # ...
    } sub {
        my($ref, $file, $line) = @_;
        warn "leaked $ref from $file line\n";
    };

    my @refs = leaked_refs{
        # ...
    };
    my @info = leaked_info{
        # ...
    };

    my $count = leaked_count{
        # ...
    };

    # standard test interface
    use Test::LeakTrace;

    no_leaks_ok{
        # ...
    } 'no memory leaks';

    leaks_cmp_ok{
        # ...
    } '<', 10;

DESCRIPTION ^

Test::LeakTrace provides several functions that trace memory leaks. This module scans arenas, the memory allocation system, so it can detect any leaked SVs in given blocks.

Leaked SVs are SVs which are not released after the end of the scope they have been created. These SVs include global variables and internal caches. For example, if you call a method in a tracing block, perl might prepare a cache for the method. Thus, to trace true leaks, no_leaks_ok() and leaks_cmp_ok() executes a block more than once.

INTERFACE ^

Exported functions

leaked_info { BLOCK }

Executes BLOCK and returns a list of leaked SVs and places where the SVs come from, i.e. [$ref, $file, $line].

leaked_refs { BLOCK }

Executes BLOCK and returns a list of leaked SVs.

leaked_count { BLOCK }

Executes BLOCK and returns the number of leaked SVs.

leaktrace { BLOCK } ?($mode | \&callback)

Executes BLOCK and reports leaked SVs to *STDERR.

Defined $modes are:

-simple

Default. Reports the leaked SV identity (type and address), file name and line number.

-sv_dump

In addition to -simple, dumps the sv content using sv_dump(), which also implements Devel::Peek::Dump().

-lines

In addition to -simple, prints suspicious source lines.

-verbose

Both -sv_dump and -lines.

no_leaks_ok { BLOCK } ?$description

Tests that BLOCK does not leaks SVs. This is a test function using Test::Builder.

Note that BLOCK is called more than once. This is because BLOCK might prepare caches which are not memory leaks.

leaks_cmp_ok { BLOCK } $cmp_op, $number, ?$description

Tests that BLOCK leaks a specific number of SVs. This is a test function using Test::Builder.

Note that BLOCK is called more than once. This is because BLOCK might prepare caches which are not memory leaks.

count_sv()

Counts all the SVs in the arena.

Script interface

Like Devel::LeakTrace Test::LeakTrace::Script is provided for whole scripts.

The arguments of use Test::LeakTrace::Script directive is the same as leaktrace().

    $ TEST_LEAKTRACE=-sv_dump perl -MTest::LeakTrace::Script script.pl
    $ perl -MTest::LeakTrace::Script=-verbose script.pl

    #!perl
    # ...

    use Test::LeakTrace::Script sub{
        my($ref, $file, $line) = @_;
        # ...
    };

    # ...

EXAMPLES ^

Testing modules

Here is a test script template that checks memory leaks.

    #!perl -w
    use strict;
    use constant HAS_LEAKTRACE => eval{ require Test::LeakTrace };
    use Test::More HAS_LEAKTRACE ? (tests => 1) : (skip_all => 'require Test::LeakTrace');
    use Test::LeakTrace;

    use Some::Module;

    leaks_cmp_ok{
        my $o = Some::Module->new();
        $o->something();
        $o->something_else();
    } '<', 1;

DEPENDENCIES ^

Perl 5.8.1 or later, and a C compiler.

CAVEATS ^

Test::LeakTrace does not work with Devel::Cover and modules which install their own runops routines, or the perl executor. So if the test functions of this module detect strange runops routines, they do nothing and report okay.

BUGS ^

No bugs have been reported.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to the author.
