Module::Install::ExtraTests - contextual tests that the harness can ignore
This plugin adds one Module::Install command:
This declares that the test files found in the directory ./xt should be runonly in certain instances:
./xt/author - run when the tests are being run in an author's working copy ./xt/smoke - run when the dist is being smoked (AUTOMATED_TESTING=1) ./xt/release - run during "make disttest"
These directories are recurisvely scanned for *.t files. If any directories orfiles exist in ./xt that are not recognized, the Makefile.PL will die.
Achtung! This is pretty scary, experimental code, mostly because it relieson the pretty scary, non-experimental-but-seriously-sketchy underlyingcustomization system for ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I may remove this warning whenI've decided that this is stable enough, but until then:
HIC SUNT DRACONES
``Is this being run by an author?'' is determined internally by Module::Install,but at the time of the writing of this version it's determined by the existenceof a directory called .author
. (On VMS,
.) Thisdirectory is created when Module::Install's Makefile.PL
is run in adirectory where no ./inc
