NAME

Test::Class::GetoptControl - Command-line control of test class execution

VERSION

version 1.100860

SYNOPSIS

    package MyApp;
    use base qw(Test::Class::GetoptControl);

    package main;
    my $app = MyApp->new;
    $app->runtests;

on the command-line:

    $ myapp --include FooTests --shuffle
    # test order: shuffle
    ok 1 - foobar

DESCRIPTION

When inheriting from this class, your application gets the ability to control the execution of test classes using command-line options.

METHODS

runtests

Calls get_classes() to determine which test classes to run and in which order, then runs them.

get_classes

Asks Test::Class for information on all registered test classes, then filters and sorts them by the criteria set in the command-line options.

GETOPT

Defines the specific command-line options for this class; see Getopt::Inherited.

COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS

--include

This option takes a string and can be given several times. It says that only classes whose package name contains the string should be run. -i is an alias for this option. If no include option is given, all test classes are run.

Examples:

    $ myapp --include Foo
    $ myapp -i Foo
    $ myapp --include Foo --include Bar
--shuffle

This options causes the test classes to be run in a random order. A note saying so is printed as well.

--reverse

This options causes the test classes to be run in reverse alphabetical package name order. If neither --reverse nor --shuffle are given, tests are run in alphabetical package name order. If both --reverse and --shuffle are given, --shuffle takes precedence and a note saying so is printed.

In any case, a note specifying the sort order is printed.

INSTALLATION
