NAME

Test::DirectoryLayout - Test directory layout for standard compliance

VERSION

version 0.002

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::More;
    use Test::DirectoryLayout qw(directory_layout_ok get_allowed_dirs set_allowed_dirs);

    my $ok = directory_layout_ok();

    my @allowed_dirs = qw(bin blib lib config doc t);
    set_allowed_dirs(\@allowed_dirs);

    my $allowed_dirs = get_allowed_dirs();

DESCRIPTION

This test module helps you to keep your project directory clean. It provides a test tool that can be used in your test suite to make sure only the allowed set of directories exists:

    use Test::More;
    use Test::DirectoryLayout qw(directory_layout_ok get_allowed_dirs set_allowed_dirs);

    ok directory_layout_ok(), 'directory layout is ok';

The predefined set of allowed directories looks like this:

    my @allowed_dirs = qw(bin blib lib config doc t);

You can set it using set_allowed_dirs:

    my @allowed_dirs = qw(bin blib lib config doc t);
    set_allowed_dirs(\@allowed_dirs);

You can get the set of currently allowed dirs by calling get_allowed_dirs:

    my $allowed_dirs = get_allowed_dirs();
