Test::Unit::Listener - unit testing framework abstract base class


This class is not intended to be used directly


This class is used by the framework to define the interface of a test listener. It is an abstract base class implemented by the test runners.

Due to the nature of the Perl OO implementation, this class is not really needed, but rather serves as documentation of the interface.

Each of the add_ methods gets two arguments: test and exception. The test is a Test::Unit::Test and the exception is a Test::Unit::Exception. Typically you want to display test->name() and keep the rest as details.
