Test::Moose(3) Test functions for Moose specific features


version 2.1605


use Test::More plan => 1;

meta_ok($class_or_obj, "... Foo has a ->meta");

This module provides some useful test functions for Moose based classes. It is an experimental first release, so comments and suggestions are very welcome.


meta_ok ($class_or_object)

Tests if a class or object has a metaclass.

does_ok ($class_or_object, $role, ?$message)

Tests if a class or object does a certain role, similar to what "isa_ok" does for the "isa" method.

has_attribute_ok($class_or_object, $attr_name, ?$message)

Tests if a class or object has a certain attribute, similar to what "can_ok" does for the methods.

with_immutable { CODE } @class_names

Runs CODE (which should contain normal tests) twice, and make each class in @class_names immutable in between the two runs.

The CODE block is called with a single boolean argument indicating whether or not the classes have been made immutable yet.


Convert the Moose test suite to use this module.
Here is a list of possible functions to write
immutability predicates
anon-class predicates
discovering original method from modified method
attribute metaclass predicates (attribute_isa?)


See ``BUGS'' in Moose for details on reporting bugs.
