DESCRIPTION

POE::Test::Loops contains one function, generate(), which will generate all the loop tests for one or more POE::Loop subclasses.

The ``SYNOPSIS'' example is a version of poe-gen-tests, which is a stand-alone utility to generate the actual tests. poe-gen-tests also documents the POE::Test::Loops system in more detail.

FUNCTIONS

generate( $DIRBASE, \@LOOPS, $VERBOSE )

Generates the loop tests. DIRBASE is the (relative) directory in which a subdirectory for each of the LOOPS is created. If VERBOSE is set to a TRUE value some progress reporting is printed.

        POE::Test::Loops::generate(
                "./t",
                [ "POE::Loop::Yours" ],
                1,
        );
