NAME

TAP::Parser::Result::Test - Test result token.

CONTENTS

VERSION

Version 3.36

DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of TAP::Parser::Result. A token of this class will be returned if a test line is encountered.



 1..1
 ok 1 - woo hooo!



OVERRIDDEN METHODS

This class is the workhorse of the TAP::Parser system. Most TAP lines will be test lines and if $result->is_test, then you have a bunch of methods at your disposal.

    Instance Methods

ok



  my $ok = $result->ok;



Returns the literal text of the ok or not ok status.

number



  my $test_number = $result->number;



Returns the number of the test, even if the original TAP output did not supply that number.

description



  my $description = $result->description;



Returns the description of the test, if any. This is the portion after the test number but before the directive.

directive



  my $directive = $result->directive;



Returns either TODO or SKIP if either directive was present for a test line.

explanation



  my $explanation = $result->explanation;



If a test had either a TODO or SKIP directive, this method will return the accompanying explanation, if present.



  not ok 17 - Pigs can fly # TODO not enough acid



For the above line, the explanation is not enough acid.

is_ok



  if ( $result->is_ok ) { ... }



Returns a boolean value indicating whether or not the test passed. Remember that for TODO tests, the test always passes.

If the test is unplanned, this method will always return false. See is_unplanned.

is_actual_ok



  if ( $result->is_actual_ok ) { ... }



Returns a boolean value indicating whether or not the test passed, regardless of its TODO status.

actual_passed

Deprecated. Please use is_actual_ok instead.

todo_passed



  if ( $test->todo_passed ) {
     # test unexpectedly succeeded
  }



If this is a TODO test and an ’ok’ line, this method returns true. Otherwise, it will always return false (regardless of passing status on non-todo tests).

This is used to track which tests unexpectedly succeeded.

todo_failed



  # deprecated in favor of todo_passed.  This method was horribly misnamed.



This was a badly misnamed method. It indicates which TODO tests unexpectedly succeeded. Will now issue a warning and call todo_passed.

has_skip



  if ( $result->has_skip ) { ... }



Returns a boolean value indicating whether or not this test has a SKIP directive.

has_todo



  if ( $result->has_todo ) { ... }



Returns a boolean value indicating whether or not this test has a TODO directive.

as_string



  print $result->as_string;



This method prints the test as a string. It will probably be similar, but not necessarily identical, to the original test line. Directives are capitalized, some whitespace may be trimmed and a test number will be added if it was not present in the original line. If you need the original text of the test line, use the raw method.

is_unplanned



  if ( $test->is_unplanned ) { ... }
  $test->is_unplanned(1);



If a test number is greater than the number of planned tests, this method will return true. Unplanned tests will always return false for is_ok, regardless of whether or not the test has_todo.

Note that if tests have a trailing plan, it is not possible to set this property for unplanned tests as we do not know it’s unplanned until the plan is reached:



  print <<END;
  ok 1
  ok 2
  1..1
  END
