NAME

Test::Exec - Test that some code calls exec without terminating testing

VERSION

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

 use Test::More;
 use Test::Exec;
 
 is_deeply exec_arrayref { exec 'foo', 'bar', 'baz' }, [qw( foo bar baz )], 'found exec!';
 is exec_arrayref { }, undef, 'did not exec!';

DESCRIPTION

Test::Exec provides the most simple possible tools for testing code that might call exec, which would otherwise end your test by calling another program. This code should detect and capture exec calls, even if they are inside an eval.

The concept was implementation was based on Test::Exit, but applied to exec instead of exit.

FUNCTIONS

exec_arrayref

 exec_arrayref { ... }

runs the given code. If the code calls exec, then this function will return an arrayref with its arguments. If the code never calls exec, it will return undef.

never_exec_ok

 never_exec_ok { ... }

Runs the given code. If the code calls exec, then the test will fail (but exec will be intercepted and not performed).

CAVEATS

This module installs its own version of exec in CORE::GLOBAL::exec, and may interact badly with any other code that is also trying to do such things.

SEE ALSO

Test::Exit

Very similar to (and inspired) this module, but for exit testing instead of exec.

Test::Mock::Cmd

Provides an interface to mocking system, qx and exec.
