DESCRIPTIONThis module is the base class for Test::Roo test classes. It provides methods to run tests and anchor modifiers. Generally, you should not extend this class yourself, but use Test::Roo to do so instead.
descriptionA description for a subtest block wrapping all tests by the object. It is a 'lazy' attribute. Test classes may implement their own "_build_description" method to create a description from object attributes. Otherwise, the default is ``testing with CLASS''.
# as a class method $class->run_tests(); $class->run_tests($description); $class->run_tests($init_args); $class->run_tests($description $init_args); # as an object method $self->run_tests(); $self->run_tests($description);
If called as a class method, this creates a test object using an optional hash reference of initialization arguments.
When called as an object method, or after an object has been generated, this method sets an optional description and runs tests. It will call the "setup" method (triggering any method modifiers), will run all tests (triggering any method modifiers on "each_test") and will call the "teardown" method (triggering any method modifiers).
If a description is provided, it will override any initialized or generated "description" attribute.
The setup, tests and teardown will be executed in a Test::More subtest block.
setupThis is an empty method used to anchor method modifiers. It should not be overridden by subclasses.
each_testThis method wraps the code references set by the "test" function from Test::Roo or Test::Roo::Role in a Test::More subtest block.
It may also be used to anchor modifiers that should run before or after each test block, though this can lead to brittle design as modifiers will globally affect every test block, including composed ones.
teardownThis is an empty method used to anchor method modifiers. It should not be overridden by subclasses.
