Perhaps this problem could be looked at from another angle. That is, if we can make the number of test planned automatically calculated, there should be no maintenance required to update the number of planned tests in the first place. We are 'lazy' programmers after all.

Our clever guys at work use the following rule to set up test plans:
use Test::More; .... my $tests_planned; ... # subsystem 1 test BEGIN { $tests_planned ++ } # carry out one test ... # subsystem 2 test BEGIN { $test_planned += 3 } # carry out our 3 tests ... ... # Then plan the tests for Test::More right at the end BEGIN { plan( tests => $tests_planned ); }

This way, the programmers only have to make sure the number of tests planned for a subsystem is true and square, and don't have to worry about the number of planned tests getting out of sync at all.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
