I would suggest putting that file in your t/ directory, using FindBin to get the full path to your t/ directory, and then passing that path to your module.

    Done and thank you!

    Here is my test file. I hope I wrote it correctly, and it is well formed. All the tests passed.

    My OS is Debian 10 (Buster); my perl versions are 5.28.1 local and 5.16.3 or 5.30.0 on web host depending on the shebang.

    No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

      You could make it less repetitive, but looks good apart from that.

      #!perl use strict; use warnings; use v5.10.0; use Test::More tests => "5"; use FindBin qw($Bin); BEGIN { use_ok( 'Fancy::Open', qw(fancy_open) ) or die "Fancy::Open is not available\n"; } diag( "Testing Fancy::Open $Fancy::Open::VERSION, Perl $], $^X" ); my $file = "$Bin/test-open.txt"; my @wanted = qw( red orange yellow spring green teal cyan azure blue violet magenta pink white black gray ); is_deeply( [ Fancy::Open::fancy_open($file) ], [ @wanted ], "testing a plain array" ); is_deeply( [ Fancy::Open::fancy_open($file, { 'before' => 'solid ' }) ], [ map "solid $_", @wanted ], "testing an array with before option" ); is_deeply( [ Fancy::Open::fancy_open($file, { 'after' => ' bead' }) ], [ map "$_ bead", @wanted ], "testing an array with after option" ); is_deeply( [ Fancy::Open::fancy_open($file, { 'before' => 'solid ', 'after' => +' bead' }) ], [ map "solid $_ bead", @wanted ], "testing an array with before and after options" ); done_testing();

      You might also want to test it on a file that ends with a "\n" and a file that doesn't end with a "\n", and see if the behaviour differs between them. Having checked your module, I don't think it will, but it might be useful to have a test for it, so you don't accidentally change that in the future without realizing it.
