NAME
       Test::Script - Basic cross-platform tests for scripts

DESCRIPTION
       The intent of this module is to provide a series of basic tests for 80% of the testing you
       will need to do for scripts in the script (or bin as is also commonly used) paths of your
       Perl distribution.

       Further, it aims to provide this functionality with perfect platform-compatibility, and in
       a way that is as unobtrusive as possible.

       That is, if the program works on a platform, then Test::Script should always work on that
       platform as well. Anything less than 100% is considered unacceptable.

       In doing so, it is hoped that Test::Script can become a module that you can safely make a
       dependency of all your modules, without risking that your module won't on some platform
       because of the dependency.

       Where a clash exists between wanting more functionality and maintaining platform safety,
       this module will err on the side of platform safety.

FUNCTIONS
   script_compiles
	   script_compiles( 'script/foo.pl', 'Main script compiles' );

       The "script_compiles" test calls the script with "perl -c script.pl", and checks that it
       returns without error.

       The path it should be passed is a relative unix-format script name. This will be localised
       when running "perl -c" and if the test fails the local name used will be shown in the
       diagnostic output.

       Note also that the test will be run with the same perl interpreter that is running the
       test script (and not with the default system perl). This will also be shown in the
       diagnostic output on failure.

   script_runs
	   script_runs( 'script/foo.pl', 'Main script runs' );

       The "script_runs" test executes the script with "perl script.pl" and checks that it
       returns success.

       The path it should be passed is a relative unix-format script name. This will be localised
       when running "perl -c" and if the test fails the local name used will be shown in the
       diagnostic output.

       The test will be run with the same perl interpreter that is running the test script (and
       not with the default system perl). This will also be shown in the diagnostic output on
       failure.
