Test::HTML::Tidy - Test::More-style wrapper around HTML::Tidy


Version 1.28

    $Header: /home/cvs/test-html-tidy/,v 1.4 2004/02/26 06:12:36 andy Exp $


    use Test::HTML::Tidy tests => 4;

    my $page = build_a_web_page();
    html_tidy_ok( $page, 'Built page properly' );


Handy way to check that HTML is valid, according to HTML::Tidy. It is built with Test::Builder and plays happily with Test::More and friends.

If you are not already familiar with Test::More now would be the time to go take a look.



html_tidy_ok( [$tidy, ] $html, $name )

Checks to see if $html contains valid HTML. $html being blank is OK. $html being undef is not.

If you pass an HTML::Tidy object, html_tidy_ok() will use that for its settings. The $html will get passed through $tidy.

    my $tidy = new HTML::Tidy;
    $tidy->ignore( type => TIDY_WARNING );
    html_tidy_ok( $tidy, $content, "Web page passes without errors" );

Otherwise, html_tidy_ok will use the default rules.

    html_tidy_ok( $content, "Web page passes ALL tests" );

Note that if you pass in your own HTML::Tidy object, html_tidy_ok() will clear its errors before using it.
