NAME ^

Test::AtRuntime - Put tests in your code and run them as your program runs

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Test::AtRuntime 'logfile';
  use Test::More;

  sub foo {
      # This test runs.
      TEST { pass('foo ran'); }
  }

  no Test::AtRuntime;

  sub bar {
      # This test is not run.
      TEST { pass('bar ran') }
  }

  foo();
  bar();

DESCRIPTION ^

Test::AtRuntime lets you use Test::More and other Test::Builder based modules directly in your source code providing a way to test your program as it runs. Similar to the concept of an assertion, except instead of dying when it fails, normal "not ok" output will be seen.

Compiling out

Like assertions, they can be turned on or off as needed. Tests are put inside of a TEST block like so:

    TEST { like( $totally, qr/rad/ ) }

use Test::AtRuntime runs these tests. no Test::AtRuntime means these tests will not be run. In fact, they will be completely removed from the program so that performance will not be effected (except some startup performance for the filtering).

Logfile

use Test::AtRuntime takes an argument, a logfile to append your tests to. If no logfile is given, tests will be outputed like normal.

CAVEATS ^

Due to what appears to be a bug in Filter::Simple, this won't work as expected:

    use Test::AtRuntime;

    ...run tests...


    no Test::AtRuntime;

    ...don't run tests...

    use Test::AtRuntime;

    ...run tests...  <--- BUG

Once you stop running tests, they can't be made to run again.
