NAME Test::Continuous - Run your test suite continuously when developing. VERSION This document describes Test::Continuous version 0.61 SYNOPSIS Very simple usage: % cd MyModule/ % perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests If you want to provide prove arguments: % perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests -- --shuffle DESCRIPTION *Continuous Testing* is a concept and tool to re-run software tests as soon as the developer saves the source code. See also <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 is the only function that you should be calling, directly from command line: perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests It'll start monitoring the mtime of all files under current working directy. If there's any update, it'll run your module test under t/ directory with App::Prove. Test result are displayed on terminal. Also dispatched to Growl if "Log::Dispatch::MacGrowl" is installed. Big plus for perl programmers on Mac. "Test::Continuous" will auto detect the subset of tests to run. For example, say you have two test files "feature-foo.t" and "feature-bar.t" which test, and use, your module "Feature::Foo" and "Feature::Bar" respectively. "Test::Continuous" can catch this static dependency and only run "feature-foo.t" when "Feature::Foo" is modified, "feature-bar.t" will only be ran if "Feature::Bar" is modified. If a ".t" file is modified, only that test file will be ran. Dynamic module dependency is more difficult to detect and needs further research. CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT Test::Continuous requires no configuration files or environment variables. DEPENDENCIES App::Prove, Log::Dispatch, Log::Dispatch::MacGrowl, Module::ExtractUse INCOMPATIBILITIES None reported. BUGS AND LIMITATIONS No bugs have been reported. Please report any bugs or feature requests to "email@example.com", or through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org>. TODO A good name for executable. Accept a per-module config file to tweak different parameters to prove command.
