Test2::Tools::Event(3) Tools for generating test events.


This module provides tools for generating events quickly by bypassing the context/hub. This is particularly useful when testing other Test2 packages.


$e = gen_event($TYPE)
$e = gen_event($TYPE, %FIELDS)
$e = gen_event 'Ok';
$e = gen_event Ok => ( ... )
$e = gen_event '+Test2::Event::Ok' => ( ... )
This will produce an event of the specified type. $TYPE is assumed to be shorthand for "Test2::Event::$TYPE", you can prefix $TYPE with a '+' to drop the assumption.

An Test2::Util::Trace will be generated using caller(0) and will be put in the 'trace' field of your new event, unless you specified your own 'trace' field.
