Test::Perinci::CmdLine - Common test suite for Perinci::CmdLine::{Lite,Classic,Inline}

VERSION

This document describes version 1.481 of Test::Perinci::CmdLine (from Perl distribution Test-Perinci-CmdLine), released on 2021-05-07.

FUNCTIONS

pericmd_run_ok

Usage:

 pericmd_run_ok(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Run a single test of a Perinci::CmdLine script.

This function is exported by default.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • argv => array (default: [])

    Command-line arguments that will be passed to generated CLI script.

  • class* => str

    Which Perinci::CmdLine class are we testing.

  • classic_gen_args => hash

    Additional arguments to be passed to `Perinci::CmdLine::Gen::gen_pericmd_script()`.

    Keys from this argument will be added to gen_args and will only be used when class is Perinci::CmdLine::Classic.

  • comp_answer => array[str]

    Test completion answer of generated CLI script.

  • comp_line0 => str

    Set COMP_LINE environment for generated CLI script.

    Can contain ^ (caret) character which will be stripped from the final COMP_LINE and the position of the character will be used to determine COMP_POINT.

  • env => hash

    Set environment variables for generated CLI script.

  • exit_code => int (default: 0)

    Expected script's exit code.

  • exit_code_like => re (default: 0)

    Expected script's exit code (as regex pattern).

  • gen_args* => hash

    Arguments to be passed to `Perinci::CmdLine::Gen::gen_pericmd_script()`.

  • gen_status => int (default: 200)

    Expected generate result status.

  • inline_allow => array[perl::modname]

    Modules to allow to be loaded when testing generated Perinci::CmdLine::Inline script.

    By default, when running the generated Perinci::CmdLine::Inline script, this perl option will be used (see lib::filter for more details):

     -Mlib::filter=allow_noncore,0

    This means the script will only be able to load core modules. But if the script is allowed to load additional modules, you can set this inline_allow parameter to, e.g. ["Foo::Bar","Baz"] and the above perl option will become:

     -Mlib::filter=allow_noncore,0,allow,Foo::Bar;Baz

    To skip using this option, set inline_run_filter to false.

  • inline_gen_args => hash

    Additional arguments to be passed to `Perinci::CmdLine::Gen::gen_pericmd_script()`.

    Keys from this argument will be added to gen_args and will only be used when class is Perinci::CmdLine::Inline.

  • inline_run_filter => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to use -Mfilter when running generated Perinci::CmdLine::Inline script.

    By default, when running the generated Perinci::CmdLine::Inline script, this perl option will be used (see lib::filter for more details):

     -Mlib::filter=allow_noncore,0,...

    This is to test that the script does not require non-core modules. To skip using this option (e.g. when using pack_deps gen option set to false), set this option to false.

  • lite_gen_args => hash

    Additional arguments to be passed to `Perinci::CmdLine::Gen::gen_pericmd_script()`.

    Keys from this argument will be added to gen_args and will only be used when class is Perinci::CmdLine::Lite.

  • name => str

    Test name.

    If not specified, a nice default will be picked (e.g. from argv).

  • posttest => code

    Additional tests.

    For example you can do is() or ok() or other Test::More tests.

  • stderr_like => re

    Test error output of generated CLI script.

  • stderr_unlike => re

    Test error output of generated CLI script.

  • stdin => str

    Supply stdin content to generated CLI script.

  • stdout_like => re

    Test output of generated CLI script.

  • stdout_unlike => re

    Test output of generated CLI script.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

pericmd_run_suite_ok

Usage:

 pericmd_run_suite_ok(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Common test suite for Perinci::CmdLine::{Lite,Classic,Inline}.

  • class* => str

    Which Perinci::CmdLine class are we testing.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

pericmd_run_test_groups_ok

Usage:

 pericmd_run_test_groups_ok(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Run groups of Perinci::CmdLine tests.

This function is exported by default.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • class* => str

    Which Perinci::CmdLine class are we testing.

  • cleanup_tempdir => bool

  • exclude_tags => array[str]

  • groups* => array

  • include_tags => array[str]

  • tempdir => str

    If not specified, will create temporary directory with File::Temp's tempdir().

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result.

Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

ENVIRONMENT

DEBUG => bool

If set to 1, then temporary files (e.g. generated scripts for testing) will not be cleaned up, so you can inspect them.

TEST_PERICMD_EXCLUDE_TAGS => str

To set default for pericmd_ok()'s exclude_tags argument.

TEST_PERICMD_INCLUDE_TAGS => str

To set default for pericmd_ok()'s include_tags argument.
