Cannot access variables declared outside the with_mock function #193

R version: 3.1.0
testthat: 0.9.1

Small example of the problem

test_that( "test",
            value <- 1.5
              expect_equal(2 * 3, 4),
              all.equal = function(x, y, ...) {value}

If I am executing the above code snippet through the “Test package” button in RStudio, then I get the error:

“1. Error: test -----------------------------------------------------------------
object 'value' not found”

Currently it seems it is not possible to reference from the mocked function variables which are declared outside the scope of the with_mock function
