Test2::Formatter(3) Namespace for formatters.


This is the namespace for formatters. This is an empty package.


A formatter is any package or object with a "write($event, $num)" method.

    package Test2::Formatter::Foo;
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    sub write {
        my $self_or_class = shift;
        my ($event, $assert_num) = @_;
    sub hide_buffered { 1 }

The "write" method is a method, so it either gets a class or instance. The 2 arguments are the $event object it should record, and the $assert_num which is the number of the current assertion (ok), or the last assertion if this even is not itself an assertion. The assertion number may be any integer 0 or greater, and may be undefined in some cases.

The "hide_buffered()" method must return a boolean. This is used to tell buffered subtests whether or not to send it events as they are being buffered. See ``run_subtest(...)'' in Test2::API for more information.
