DESCRIPTIONPlease note that this is ALPHA CODE. As such, the interface is likely to change.
Test::Email is a subclass of MIME::Entity, with the above methods. If you want the messages fetched from a POP3 account, use Test::POP3.
Tests for equality remove trailing newlines from strings before testing. This is because some mail messages have newlines appended to them during the mailing process, which could cause unnecessary confusion.
This module should be 100% self-explanatory. If not, then please look at Test::Simple and Test::More for clarification.
- "my $email = Test::Email->new($lines_aref);"
- This is identical to "MIME::Entity->new()". See there for details.
- "$email->ok($test_href, $description);"
- Using this method, you can test multiple qualities of an email message with one test. This will execute the tests as expected and will produce output just like "Test::Simple::ok" and "Test::More::ok". Keys for $test_href are either "body", or they are considered to be the name of a header, case-insensitive.
- single-test methods
The single-test methods in the synopsis above are very similar to their
counterparts in Test::Simple and Test::More. Please consult those
modules for documentation.
Please note that tests for equality remove newlines from their operands before testing. This is because some email messages have newlines appended to them during mailing.
- "my $ok = $email-"parts_ok($parts_count, $description);>
- Check to see how many MIME parts this email contains. Each part is also a Test::Email object.
- "my $ok = $email-"mime_type_ok($expected_mime_type, $description);>
- Check the MIME type of an email or an email part.
TODOI am open to suggestions.
