Test::Unit::GTestRunner - Unit testing framework helper class
use Test::Unit::GTestRunner; Test::Unit::GTestRunner->new->start ($my_testcase_class); Test::Unit::GTestRunner::main ($my_testcase_class);
If you just want to run a unit test (suite), try it like this:
Try "perldoc gtestrunner" or "man gtestrunner" for more information.
This class is a GUI test runner using the Gimp Toolkit Gtk+ (which is called Gtk2 in Perl). You can use it if you want to integrate the testing framework into your own application.
For a description of the graphical user interface, please see gtestrunner(1).
You will usually invoke it from a runner script like this:
#! /usr/local/bin/perl -w use strict; require Test::Unit::GTestRunner; Test::Unit::GTestRunner::main (@ARGV) or exit 1;
See Test::Unit::TestRunner (3) for details.
An internationalized version would go like this:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Test::Unit::GTestRunner; use POSIX; use Locale::Messages qw (LC_ALL); POSIX::setlocale (LC_ALL, ""); Test::Unit::GTestRunner::main (@ARGV) or exit (1);
The constructor takes no arguments. It will throw an exception in case of failure.
The method fires up the graphical user interface and will never return.
The optional arguments SUITE can either be the name of a file containing a test suite (see Test::Unit::TestSuite(3pm)), for example "TS_MySuite.pm", or the name of a Perl module, for example "Tests::TS_MySuite". Multiple suites passed as arguments to the method are assembled into one virtual top-level suite that is hidden from the display.
If you prefer a functional interface, you can also start a test session with
The optional argument SUITE is interpreted as described above for the method start().
