The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.


Test2::EventFacet::Control - Facet for hub actions and behaviors.


This facet is used when the event needs to give instructions to the Test2 internals.


$string = $control->{details}
$string = $control->details()

Human readable explanation for the special behavior.

$bool = $control->{global}
$bool = $control->global()

True if the event is global in nature and should be seen by all hubs.

$exit = $control->{terminate}
$exit = $control->terminate()

Defined if the test should immediately exit, the value is the exit code and may be 0.

$bool = $control->{halt}
$bool = $control->halt()

True if all testing should be halted immediately.

$bool = $control->{has_callback}
$bool = $control->has_callback()

True if the callback($hub) method on the event should be called.

$encoding = $control->{encoding}
$encoding = $control->encoding()

This can be used to change the encoding from this event onward.

$phase = $control->{phase}
$phase = $control->phase()

Used to signal that a phase change has occurred. Currently only the perl END phase is signaled.
