NAME ^

Test::Proto::Series - Container for test prototypes.

SYNOPSIS ^

        Test::Proto::Series->new(pAr,pHr)

This is a container for test prototypes and is used to create groups, repetition, and options in DTD-like validation methods such as Test::Proto::ArrayRef::contains_only. To validate arrays/lists, consider using Test::Proto::ArrayRef.

METHODS ^

new

Constructor. Arguments become contents.

validate_many

        my $remainder = $series->validate_many(['ONION', 'TURNIP', 'SALT']);

Tries to match all the elements in the argumnent withe the contents previously specified. It will return the remaining elements, or the first failure it runs into.

validate

        my $remainder = $series->validate('ONION');

Near-alias for validate_many, but wraps the first argument in an arrayref.

initialise

When new is called, initialise is called on the object just before it is returned. This mostly exists so that subclasses wishing to add initial tests do not have to overload new.

repeat

        pSeries($valid_key, $integer)->repeat(1,10);

Sets the minimum and maximum repeats allowed.

set_contents

        $series->set_contents([$valid_key, $integer]);

Sets the contents allowed in the series. Returns the series.

clone

        my $series = pSeries($valid_key, $integer)->repeat(1,10);
        $series->clone->repeat(1,20)->validate_many($long_key_list);

Creates a copy of the series. Individual contents remain references.

upgrade

Works like Test::Proto::Base::Upgrade, s.v.
