NAME

Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepFile - Functions for creating and loading Step Definitions

VERSION

version 0.37

DESCRIPTION

Provides the Given/When/Then functions, and a method for loading Step Definition files and returning the steps.

SYNOPSIS

Defining steps:

 #!perl

 use strict; use warnings; use Test::More;

 use Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepFile;

 Given     'something',          sub { print "YEAH!" }
 When      qr/smooooth (\d+)/,   sub { print "YEEEHAH $1" }
 Then      qr/something (else)/, sub { S->{'match'} = $1 }
 Step      qr/die now/,          sub { die "now" }
 Transform qr/^(\d+)$/,          sub { int $1 }
 Before                          sub { setup_db() }
 After                           sub { teardown() }

Loading steps, in a different file:

 use Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepFile;
 my @steps = Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepFile->load('filename_steps.pl');

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

Given

When

Then

Step

Transform

Before

After

Accept a regular expression or string, and a coderef. Some cute tricks ensure that when you call the load() method on a file with these statements in, these are returned to it...

C

S

Return the context and the Scenario stash, respectively, but only when called inside a step definition.

load

Loads a file containing step definitions, and returns a list of the steps defined in it, of the form:

 (
  [ 'Given', qr/abc/, sub { etc } ],
  [ 'Step',  'asdf',  sub { etc } ]
 )
