perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
This module requires the following modules for thorough testing:
(These are core, you should be ok) Cwd File::Path File::Spec::Functions Test::More
(These are optional) Test::Output Test::Pod Test::Pod::Coverage
For more advanced testing, it is possible to run the eg/setup-extra-tests program as root. This will create a directory 'EXTRA' that contains a mixture of files and directories owned both by root and a specified user (uid or login name).
sudo perl eg/setup-extra-tests -u david make test
This is used to exercise parts of the code that ordinarily wouldn't be visited. That is, as root, some files and directories will be created that the user 'david', which will run the test suite, will not be able to remove.
It would be nice to do something tricksy like this for Win32, which has a much richer privilege scheme.
