NAME

Test2::Manual::Testing::Planning - The many ways to set a plan.

DESCRIPTION

This tutorial covers the many ways of setting a plan.

TEST COUNT

The plan() function is provided by Test2::Tools::Basic. This function lets you specify an exact number of tests to run. This can be done at the start of testing, or at the end. This cannot be done partway through testing.

    use Test2::Tools::Basic;
    plan(10); # 10 tests expected

    ...

DONE TESTING

The done_testing() function is provided by Test2::Tools::Basic. This function will automatically set the plan to the number of tests that were run. This must be used at the very end of testing.

    use Test2::Tools::Basic;

    ...

    done_testing();

SKIP ALL

The skip_all() function is provided by Test2::Tools::Basic. This function will set the plan to 0, and exit the test immediately. You may provide a skip reason that explains why the test should be skipped.

    use Test2::Tools::Basic;
    skip_all("This test will not run here") if ...;

    ...

CUSTOM PLAN EVENT

A plan is simply an Test2::Event::Plan event that gets sent to the current hub. You could always write your own tool to set the plan.

    use Test2::API qw/context/;

    sub set_plan {
        my $count = @_;

        my $ctx = context();
        $ctx->send_event('Plan', max => $count);
        $ctx->release;

        return $count;
    }
