Test2::Tools::Explain -- Explain tools for Perl's Test2 framework
Test2::Suite dropped the explain() function that had been part of Test::More. For those who miss it in Test2, you can use Test2::Tools::Explain.
my $errors = fleeble_the_whatzit();
is( $errors, , 'Should have no errors from fleebling' ) or diag explain( $errors );
All functions in this module are exported by default.
Will convert the contents of any references in a human readable format, and return them as strings. Usually you want to pass this into note or diag.
Handy for things like:
is( $errors, , 'Should have no errors' ) or diag explain( $errors );
Note that explain does NOT output anything.
