NAME

T - Encapsulate testing tools instead of cluttering your namespace.

DESCRIPTION

This module collection makes it possible to use popular testing tools such as Test::More or Test2::Bundle::Extended without cluttering up your namespace. Under the hood all the work is done by Import::Box which was created specifically to implement this.

SYNOPSIS

BOX FUNCTIONS

    use T 'More'; # Loads Test::More, and provides the t() box function

    use T2 'Basic'; # Loads Test2::Tools::Basic, and provides the t2() function

    use T2::B 'Extended'; # Loads Test2::Bundle::Extended, also provides/appends to the t2() function

    use T2::P 'SRand'; # Loads Test2::Plugin::SRand, and provides the t2p() function

    t->is('a', 'a', "Can run Test::More::is()");
    t2->is('a', 'a', "Can run Test2::Tools::Compare::is()"); # (Provided by the extended bundle)


    # Alternate syntax:

    t  is => ('a', 'a');
    t2 is => ('a', 'a');

OO

    use T;
    use T2;
    use T2::B;

    my $t = T->new('More'); # Loads Test::More into $t

    my $t2 = T2->new('Basic'); # Loads Test2::Tools::Basic into $t2

    my $t2b = T2::B->new('Extended'); # Loads Test2::Bundle::Extended into $t2b

    $t->is('a', 'a', "Can run Test::More::is()");

    $t2->ok(1, "ok from Test2::Tools::Basic");

    $t2b->is('a', 'a', "Can run Test2::Tools::Compare::is()");


    # Indirect syntax (just say NO!)

    is $t('a', 'a');
    ok $t2(1, "pass");
    is $t2b('a', 'a');

PACKAGES

T

This is used for boxing Test:: modules into the t() box.

T2

This is used for boxing Test2::Tools:: modules into the t2() box.

T2::B

This is used for boxing Test2::Bundle:: modules into the t2() box.

T2::P

This is used for boxing Test2::Plugin:: modules into the t2p() box. A plugin should never actually export anything, so this is actually just a shortcut for loading plugins.

METHODS

t->import($MODULE)
$t->import($MODULE)
t->import($MODULE => \@IMPORT_ARGS)
$t->import($MODULE => \@IMPORT_ARGS)

This will load $MODULE and place the exports into the box instead of your namespace. A prefix is automatically prepended to $MODULE, which prefix depends on the class used for boxing. To avoid the prefix you can append '+' to the front of $MODULE:

    t->import('+My::Module');
