NAME

Test::Unit::Runner - abstract base class for test runners

SYNOPSIS

    my $runner = Test::Unit::TestRunner->new();
    $runner->filter(@filter_tokens);
    $runner->start(...);

DESCRIPTION

This class is a parent class of all test runners, and hence is not intended to be used directly. It provides functionality such as state (e.g. run-time options) available to all runner classes.

suites_running()

Returns an array stack of the current suites running. When a new suite is started, it is pushed on the stack, and it is popped on completion. Hence the first element in the returned array is the top-level suite, and the last is the innermost suite.

filter([ @tokens ])

Set the runner's filter tokens to the given list.

reset_filter()

Clears the current filter.
