A pending method for Test::Unit kind of like RSpec's except perhaps a little more strict or perhaps not or perhaps it's just a little edgy about living in RSpec's shadow or maybe it's just grumpy or maybe...

pending

== DESCRIPTION:

pending lets you define a block of test code that is currently "pending" functionality,
similar to RSpec's pending method.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* A pending method to let you define pending test code

== SYNOPSIS:

The pending method lets you define a block of test code that is currently "pending"
functionality.

You can use it two ways.  One is simply put a string as the parameter:

  def test_web_service_integration
    pending "This is not done yet..."
  end

This will output a "P" in the test output alerting there is pending functionality.

You can also supply a block of code:

  def test_new_helpers
    pending "New helpers for database display" do
      output = render_record(User.first)
      assert_equal "Jerry User (jerry@users.com)", output
    end
  end

If the block doesn't fail, then the test will flunk with output like:

  <New helpers for database display> did not fail.

If the test fails (i.e., the functionality isn't implemented), then it will
not fail the surrounding test.

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Test::Unit

== INSTALL:

  sudo gem install pending
