    What part of "instead of checking whether there is any difference, check for a specific difference" is specific to is_deeply and not general test logic?

      well you spoke specifically about is_deeply

      I think my demo of a workaround shows what I wanted, since all tests are returning a boolean result.

        I only mention is_deeply in this sentence:

        You won't need is_deeply since you don't need to check all elements.

        In what way is "You won't need is_deeply" specifically about is_deeply? The approach of testing for a specific known difference in your prepared data is a general approach that works for your cases, or at least you haven't shown a counterexample.

    Sounds like you're just trying to illicit specific responses. Better to just come out and say what you want to say rather than attempt to be coy about it.
