package Test_Package; use strict; sub testing { print "okay"; }; 1; ------------------------- #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use lib qw( c:\ ); use Test::More tests => 1; use Test_Package; ok( Test_Package->testing() eq 'okay', 'Testing okay');
When I run this script, it says that the test fails.

This is a stripped down script and package. Basically, I want to test the method Test_Package->testing() so that I know what it prints on the screen is the same as what I would expect.

Unfortunately, the output of the subroutine goes to the standard output and so I am not sure how to capture it so that I can test it.

Also, I do not wish to change anything in the package, but I can do any modification on the script.

Thanks in advance.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
