Test::Inline::Content::Simple - Simple templating Content Handler


  In your inline2test.tpl
  #!/usr/bin/perl -w
  use strict;
  use Test::More [% plan %];
  $| = 1;
  [% tests %]


It is relatively common to want to customise the contents of the generated test files to set up custom environment things on an all-scripts basis, rather than file by file (using =begin SETUP blocks).

Test::Inline::Content::Simple lets you use a very simple Template Toolkit style template to define this information.

It contains only two tags, plan and tests.

The plan tag will be inserted as either tests = 123> or 'no_plan'.

The tests tag will be replaced by the actual testing code.


new $filename

Manually create a new Test::Inline::Content::Simple object. Takes as parameter a single filename which should contain the template code.

Returns a new Test::Inline::Content::Simple object, or undef on error.


The template accessor returns the template content for the object

process $Inline, $Script

The process method is unchanged from Test::Inline::Content.
