- Clone this repository
git submodule update --init --recursive. This will pull in the Exercism problem specification repository.
Each exercise has its own cpanfile (if necessary) for any dependencies it might have. Other dependencies can be found in and installed with the top level cpanfile.
It is recommended to use Carton.
Install the Carton module, run
carton install to install the dependencies from the cpanfile, then prepend
carton exec to your commands to include the locally installed dependencies.
Adding/Updating an Exercise
Each exercise should have an
exercise-data.yaml file inside a directory named
.meta (please add one if the exercise does not have one yet).
This is used by the
exercise-gen.pl script in the
bin directory to generate the module and test for an exercise.
Documentation for the generator can be found in the
If the Exercism problem specification for the exercise has been updated, run
git submodule update --recursive --remote --checkout --force git add problem-specifications
to update the submodule to the latest.
Testing the Tests
The Exercism system allows us to have example implementations in the directory of each exercise.
If they are in the
.meta directory they won't be copied to the users. (which is a good thing).
Testing All the Exercises
Run the full tests with
prove -r exercises/*/.meta/solutions
Testing a Single Exercise
