Test::Stream::Capabilities - Check if the current system has various capabilities.

DEPRECATED

This distribution is deprecated in favor of Test2, Test2::Suite, and Test2::Workflow.

See Test::Stream::Manual::ToTest2 for a conversion guide.

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::Stream::Capabilities qw/CAN_FORK CAN_REALLY_FORK CAN_THREAD/;

    if (CAN_FORK) {
        my $pid = fork();
        ...
    }

    if (CAN_REALLY_FORK) {
        my $pid = fork();
        ...
    }

    if (CAN_THREAD) {
        threads->new(sub { ... });
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module will export requested constants which will always be a boolean true or false.

AVAILABLE CHECKS

CAN_FORK

True if this system is capable of true or psuedo-fork.

CAN_REALLY_FORK

True if the system can really fork. This will be false for systems where fork is emulated.

CAN_THREAD

True if this system is capable of using threads.

NOTES && CAVEATS

5.10.0

Perl 5.10.0 has a bug when compiled with newer gcc versions. This bug causes a segfault whenever a new thread is launched. Test::Stream will attempt to detect this, and note that the system is not capable of forking when it is detected.

Devel::Cover

Devel::Cover does not support threads. CAN_THREAD will return false if Devel::Cover is loaded before the check is first run.
