Test::Tolerant(3) test routines for testing numbers against tolerances


version 1.708


use Test::More;
use Test::Tolerant;
my $total = rand(6) + rand(6) + rand(6);
is_tol(10, [ qw( 3 to 18 ) ], "got an acceptable result from random dice");



  is_tol($have, $want_spec, $comment);

"is_tol" is the only routine provided by Test::Tolerant, and is exported by default. It beahves like "is" from Test::More, asserting that two values must be equal, but it will always use numeric equality, and the second argument is not always used as the right hand side of comparison directly, but it used to produce a Number::Tolerant to compare to.

$have_spec can be:

  * a Number::Tolerant object
  * an arrayref of args to Number::Tolerant->new
  * a string to be passed to Number::Tolerant->from_string
    * a literal number falls under this group

If the value is outside of spec, you'll get a diagnostic message something like this:

  given value is outside acceptable tolerances
      have: 3
      want: 5 < x
