DESCRIPTION

The methods in the Test::STD:Scrub package are designed to support the Test::STDmaker and the ExtUtils::SVDmaker package. This is the focus and no other focus. Since Test::STD::Scrub is a separate package, the methods may be used elsewhere. They are used to wild card out parts of two documents before they are compared by making these snippets the same. In all likehood, any revisions will maintain backwards compatibility with previous revisions. However, support and the performance of the Test::STDmaker and ExtUtils::SVDmaker packages has priority over backwards compatibility.

scrub_architect

 $scrubbed_text = Test::STD::Scrub->scrub_architect($script_text)

When comparing the contents of two Perl program modules, the architect should not be used in the comparision. The scrub_architect method will replace the architect with a generic value. Applying the scrub_architect to the contents of both files before the comparision will eliminate the date and version as factors in the comparision.

scrub_date_ticket

 $scrubbed_text = Test::STD::Scrub->scrub_date_ticket($script_text)

When comparing the contents of email messages, the date and email ticket should not be used in the comparision. The scrub_date_ticket method will replace the date and email ticket with a generic value. Applying the scrub_date_ticket to the contents of both files before the comparision will eliminate the data and ticket as factors in the comparision.

scrub_date_version

 $scrubbed_text = Test::STD::Scrub->scrub_date_version($script_text)

When comparing the contents of two Perl program modules, the date and version should not be used in the comparision. The scrub_date_versiont method will replace the date and version with a generic value. Applying the scrub_date_version to the contents of both files before the comparision will eliminate the date and version as factors in the comparision.

scrub_file_line

 $scrubbed_text = Test::STD::Scrub->scrub_file_line($script_text)

When comparing the ouput of Test module the file and line number should not be used in the comparision. The scrub_file_line method will replace the file and line with a generic value. The subroutine changes any double quotes around numbers to single quotes. Applying the scrub_file_line to the contents of both files before the comparision will eliminate the file and line as factors in the comparision.

scrub_test_file

 $scrubbed_text = Test::STD::Scrub->scrub_test_file($script_text)

When comparing the ouput of Test:Harness module the test file should not be used in the comparision. The scrub_test_file method will replace the test file with a generic value. Applying the scrub_test_file to the contents of both files before the comparision will eliminate the test file as a factor in the comparision.

REQUIREMENTS

Someday.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Running the test script Scrub.t verifies the requirements for this module. The tmake.pl cover script for Test::STDmaker automatically generated the Scrub.t test script, Scrub.d demo script, and t::Text::Scrub program module POD, from the t::Text::Scrub program module contents. The tmake.pl cover script automatically ran the Scrub.d demo script and inserted the results into the 'DEMONSTRATION' section above. The t::Text::Scrub program module is in the distribution file Text-Scrub-$VERSION.tar.gz.
