=head1 NAME

Test::Unit::Loader - unit testing framework helper class


This class is not intended to be used directly.


This class is used by the framework to load test classes into the
runtime environment.  It handles test case and test suite classes
(referenced either via their package names or the files containing
them), Test::Harness style test files, and directory names.
