Module Version: 0.11   Source   Latest Release: Test-Dependencies-0.12

NAME ^

Test::Dependencies - Ensure that your Makefile.PL specifies all module dependencies

VERSION ^

Version 0.11

SYNOPSIS ^

In your t/00-dependencies.t:

    use Test::Dependencies exclude =>
      [qw/ Your::Namespace Some::Other::Namespace /];

    ok_dependencies();

DESCRIPTION ^

Makes sure that all of the modules that are 'use'd are listed in the Makefile.PL as dependencies.

OPTIONS ^

You can pass options to the module via the 'use' line. The available options are:

exclude

Specifies the list of namespaces for which it is ok not to have specified dependencies.

style

Specifies the style of module usage checking to use. There are two valid values: "light" and "heavy". The default is heavy. The light style uses regular expressions to try and guess which modules are required. It is fast, but can get confused by here-docs, multi-line strings, data sections, etc. The heavy style actually compiles the file and asks perl which modules were used. It is slower than the light style, but much more accurate. If you have a very large project and you don't want to wait for the heavy style every time you run "make test," you might want to try the light style or look into the overrides below.

Whether a style is specified or not, the style used can be overriden by the environment variable TDSTYLE. This is useful, for example, if you want the heavy style to be used normally, but don't want to take the time checking dependencies on your smoke test server.

Example usage:

  use Test::Dependencies
    exclude => ['Test::Dependencies'],
    style => 'light';

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS ^

ok_dependencies

This should be the only test called in the test file. It scans bin/ and lib/ for module usage and t/ for build usage. It will then test that all modules used are listed as required in Makefile.PL, all modules used in t/ are listed as build required, that all modules listed are actually used, and that modules that are listed are not in the core list.
