NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::TestingAndDebugging::RequireTestLabels - Tests should all have labels.

CONTENTS

AFFILIATION

This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.

DESCRIPTION

Most Perl modules with regression tests use Test::More as infrastructure for writing and running those tests. It has an easy, procedural syntax for writing comparisons of results to expectations.

Most of the Test::More functions allow the programmer to add an optional label that describes what each test is trying to judge. When a test goes wrong, these labels are very useful for quickly determining where the problem originated.

This policy enforces that all Test::More functions have labels where applicable. This only applies to code that has a use Test::More or require Test::More declaration (see below to add more test modules to the list).

CONFIGURATION

A list of additional modules to require label parameters be passed to their methods can be specified with the modules option. The list must consist of whitespace-delimited, fully-qualified module names. For example:



    [TestingAndDebugging::RequireTestLabels]
    modules = My::Test::SubClass  Some::Other::Module



The module list always implicitly includes Test::More.
