Make tests pass with plain prove #92

wants to merge 3 commits into from

HaraldJoerg commented Jul 5, 2018

When I run the tests from the repository with prove -vlbr, then two tests (basic.t and test_control_methods) have one failure each. The failure disappears when I directly call prove -vlbr t/basic.t. Apparently prove without a path prepends ./t/ before the test files: the failure reappears when I call prove -vlbr ./t/basic.t. The patch allows for an optional ./ before the path names in the die messages.
make test passes with and without the patch.

This PR is a "side effect" of my work with test-class-moose as my July assignment in the CPAN Pull Request Challenge.

Thanks for working on this. I think this can be simplified, however.

The parens are unnecessary and I'm not sure this is the right fix anyway. I think it'd be better to rewrite the regex as something like this qr{\Qforced die at \E.*\Qbasic.t\E.+}s

We don't really care much about the path leading up to the filename, we just want to make sure it's reporting the right exception.
