NAME

Test::Deep::UnorderedPairs - A Test::Deep plugin for comparing lists as if they were hashes

VERSION

version 0.003

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::More;
    use Test::Deep;
    use Test::Deep::UnorderedPairs;

    cmp_deeply(
        {
            inventory => [
                pear => 6,
                peach => 5,
                apple => 1,
            ],
        },
        {
            inventory => unordered_pairs(
                apple => 1,
                peach => ignore,
                pear => 6,
            ),
        },
        'got the right inventory',
    );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides the sub unordered_pairs (and tuples, samehash, as synonyms) to indicate the data being tested is a list of pairs that should be tested where the order of the pairs is insignificant.

This is useful when testing a function that returns a list of hash elements as an arrayref, not a hashref. One such application might be testing PSGI headers, which are passed around as an arrayref:

    my $response = [
        '200',
        [
            'Content-Length' => '12',
            'Content-Type' => 'text/plain',
        ],
        [ 'hello world!' ],
    ];

    # this test passes
    cmp_deeply(
        $response,
        [
            '200',
            unordered_pairs(
                'Content-Type' => 'text/plain',
                'Content-Length' => '12',
            ],
            [ 'hello world!' ],
        ],
        'check headers as an arrayref of unordered pairs',
    );

FUNCTIONS/METHODS

  • unordered_pairs

    Pass an (even-numbered) list of items to test

  • tuples, samehash

    tuples and samehash are aliases for unordered_pairs. I'm open to more names as well; I'm not quite yet sure what the best nomenclature should be.

SUPPORT

Bugs may be submitted through the RT bug tracker (or bug-Test-Deep-UnorderedPairs@rt.cpan.org). I am also usually active on irc, as 'ether' at irc.perl.org.
