NAME
    Test::Continuous - Run your test suite continuously when developing.

SYNOPSIS
    Very simple usage:

        % cd MyModule/
        % autoprove

    You may pass prove arguments:

        % autoprove --shuffle

DESCRIPTION
    *Continuous Testing* is a concept and tool to re-run software tests as
    soon as the developer saves the source code.

    "Test::Continuous" is a tool based on App::Prove that implements this
    concept for Perl.

    See <http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/continuoustesting/> for the
    original implementation of Continuous Testing as an Eclipse plugin. See
    also Zentest <http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenTest/> for the
    same concept implemented in Ruby's world.

INTERFACE
    runtests
        This function starts monitoring the mtime of all files under current
        working directory. If there's any update, it runs your module tests
        under t/ directory with App::Prove.

        You could call it from command line like this:

            perl -MTest::Continuous -e Test::Continuous::runtests

        However, it's recommended to use the autoprove program shipped with
        this distribution to do this instead.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

    Test::Continuous requires no configuration files.

    Your ".proverc. is NOT loaded, even though it's based on App::Prove.

    The main "runtests()" routine parses arguments on the command line or
    passed via the environment variable "AUTOPROVE_OPTS".  All autoprove
    options are prefixed with "--autoprove-" (in both the command line and
    the environmental variable).

    Valid options:

    "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" (Default)
    "--autoprove-skip-initial"
        These options allow control over whether the initial tests are run
        when autoprove is first started. By default, "runtests()" will run
        all tests when executed, and then wait for changes.

        Using "--autoprove-skip-initial" skips the initial tests and goes
        straight to watching for changes to files.  Generally, you should
        run all tests, in case something changed while "Test::Continuous"
        was not running. The "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" is provided so
        that you can override an environmental variable "AUTOPROVE_OPTS"
        that includes "--autoprove-skip-initial" via the command line, by
        passing autoprove the "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" option.

DEPENDENCIES
    App::Prove, Log::Dispatch, Log::Dispatch::DesktopNotification,
    Module::ExtractUse

INCOMPATIBILITIES
    It might not be compatible with all Test::Harness::* classes. Testing
    with remote harness classes basically works, but has some glitches. Help
    is appreciated.
