HOWTO

USE THIS MODULE

REDHAT

If you want to simulate another OS just copy all templates to a directory of your choice and adjust them acording to your needs.

Then set tpldir to point to that directory.

Q&A

WHY PERL

Because I'm most prolific with perl.

WHY IS IT SO SLOW

Because it does lots of computations.

Some performance hints:

Use a ramfs

Your temp directory, usually /tmp, should be located on a sufficiently large ramdisk

Use forkprove

You should split your tests into multiple t files, each testing on environment, and process them w/ forkprove, e.g. forkprove -j<NUMCORES> -MMoose -MTest::More -MTest::Puppet::Compile t/
