VERSION

This document describes Test::More::Behaviours

SYNOPSIS

                use Test::More::Behaviours tests => 9 ;
                ...
                sub set_up{

                }

                sub tear_down{

                }

                test "Validating email entered during signup" => sub {

                        is $l->valid_email("") => 0, "should return 0 for empty email"  ;
                        is $l->valid_email("tot,\@l") => 0, "should return 0 for invalid email tot,\@l" ;
                        ok $l->valid_email("hello\@world"), "should return 1 for valid email hello\@world.com" ;

                };

  

DESCRIPTION

 this module facilitate the grouping of Test::More assertions into Behaviours.
 This make the test easier to read and maintain as the assertions are logically grouped and dont' form a long list hard to the eye and prone to confusion.

 It will also make the TAP output more pleasant as the TAP lines are grouped into the behaviours defined in the test file. 

 It is also possible to define a set_up and tear_down subroutine that will be called respectively before and after each behaviour test.

INTERFACE

Test::More::Behaviours exports one subroutine

test

test BEHAVIOUR => sub { ASSERTIONS } ;

This is the structure used to group a collection of Test::More assertions around common behaviours.

BEHAVIOUR should be a concise description of the behaviour to test. It is recommended that it has an active form and is unambigous.

ASSERTIONS is a list of Test::More assertions. The descriptive message for each assertion should describe what the tested behaviour is expected to verify. It is recommended that it always start with "should ..."

        test "validating email during signup" => sub {

                is validate("") => 0, "should return 0 for empty email"  ;
                is validate("tyudaj@&") => 0, "should return 0 for invalid email tyudaj@&" ;
                ok validate("dfd@dfdf.com"), "should return 1 for valid email dfd@dfdf.com" ;

        };
