Module::Install::AuthorTests - designate tests only run by module authors
This plugin adds the following Module::Install commands:
This declares that the test files found in the directory ./xt should be run only if the module is being built by an author. For an explanation, see below.
You may declare multiple test directories by passing a list of tests. Since tests are not recursive by default, it should be safe to use a subdirectory of ./t for author tests, like:
This acts like
author_tests, but will look for tests in directories below ./xt as well as in the directory itself.
HOW IT WORKS
"Is this being run by an author?" is determined internally by Module::Install, but at the time of the writing of this version it's determined by the existence of a directory called .author in ./inc. (On VMS, it's _author.) This directory is created when Module::Install's Makefile.PL is run in a directory where no ./inc directory exists.
