This is the perl test library. To run the test suite, just type './TEST' or 'make test' from the build directory above t/. See also the section "Special Make Test Targets" in pod/perlhack.pod to learn about other specific test commands. To add new tests, just look at the current tests and do likewise. The library t/test.pl provides some utility functions that you can use in most tests, except in the most basic ones. If a test fails, run it by itself to see if it prints any informative diagnostics. If not, modify the test to print informative diagnostics. If you put out extra lines with a '#' character on the front, you don't have to worry about removing the extra print statements later since TEST ignores lines beginning with '#'. If you know that Perl is basically working but expect that some tests will fail, you may want to use Test::Harness thusly: cd t ./perl harness This method pinpoints failed tests automatically. If you come up with new tests, please send them to email@example.com. Tests in the t/base/ directory ought to be runnable with plain miniperl. That is, they should not require Config.pm nor should they require any extensions to have been built. TEST will abort if any tests in the t/base/ directory fail. Tests in the t/comp/, t/cmd/, t/run/, t/io/, t/op/ and t/uni/ directories should also be runnable by miniperl and not require Config.pm, but failures to comply will not cause TEST to abort like for t/base/.
