Test::Unit::Result - unit testing framework helper class SYNOPSIS
This class is not intended to be used directly DESCRIPTION
This class is used by the framework to record the results of tests, which will throw an instance of a subclass of Test::Unit::Exception in case of errors or failures. To achieve this, this class gets called with a test case as argument. It will call this test case's run method back and catch any excep- tions thrown. It could be argued that Test::Unit::Result is the heart of the PerlUnit framework, since TestCase classes vary, and you can use one of sev- eral Test::Unit::TestRunners, but we always gather the results in a Test::Unit::Result object. This is the quintessential call tree of the communication needed to record the results of a given test: $aTestCase->run() { # creates result $aTestResult->run($aTestCase) { # catches exception and records it $aTestCase->run_bare() { # runs test method inside eval $aTestCase->run_test() { # calls method $aTestCase->name() # and propagates exception # method will call Assert::assert() # to cause failure if test fails on # test assertion # it finds this because $aTestCase is-a Assert } } } } Note too that, in the presence of Test::Unit::TestSuites, this call tree can get a little more convoluted, but if you bear the above in mind it should be apparent what's going on.

Test::Unit::Assertion - The abstract base class for assertions NAME
Any assertion class that expects to plug into Test::Unit::Assert needs to implement this interface. Required methods new Creates a new assertion object. Takes whatever arguments you desire. Isn't strictly necessary for the framework to work with this class but is generally considered a good idea. do_assertion This is the important one. If Test::Unit::Assert::assert is called with an object as its first argument then it does: $_[0]->do_assertion(@_[1 .. $#_]) || $self->fail("Assertion failed"); This means that "do_assertion" should return true if the assertion succeeds and false if it doesn't. Or, you can fail by throwing a Test::Unit::Failure object, which will get caught further up the stack and used to produce a sensible error report. Generally it's good practice for do_assertion to die with a meaningful error on assertion failure rather than just returning false. AUTHOR
