Test::Unit::TestSuite - unit testing framework base class


    use Test::Unit::TestSuite;

    # more code here ...

    sub suite {
        my $class = shift;

        # create an empty suite
        my $suite = Test::Unit::TestSuite->empty_new("A Test Suite");
        # get and add an existing suite

        # extract suite by way of suite method and add
        # get and add another existing suite

        # return the suite built
        return $suite;


This class is normally not used directly, but it can be used for creating your own custom built aggregate suites.

Normally, this class just provides the functionality of auto-building a test suite by extracting methods with a name prefix of test from a given package to the test runners.
