Test::use::ok - Alternative to Test::More::use_ok SYNOPSIS
use ok 'Some::Module'; DESCRIPTION
According to the Test::More documentation, it is recommended to run "use_ok()" inside a "BEGIN" block, so functions are exported at compile-time and prototypes are properly honored. That is, instead of writing this: use_ok( 'Some::Module' ); use_ok( 'Other::Module' ); One should write this: BEGIN { use_ok( 'Some::Module' ); } BEGIN { use_ok( 'Other::Module' ); } However, people often either forget to add "BEGIN", or mistakenly group "use_ok" with other tests in a single "BEGIN" block, which can create subtle differences in execution order. With this module, simply change all "use_ok" in test scripts to "use ok", and they will be executed at "BEGIN" time. The explicit space after "use" makes it clear that this is a single compile-time action. SEE ALSO

Test::UseAllModules - do use_ok() for all the MANIFESTed modules SYNOPSIS
# basic usage use strict; use Test::UseAllModules; BEGIN { all_uses_ok(); } # if you also want to test modules under t/lib use strict; use Test::UseAllModules under => qw(lib t/lib); BEGIN { all_uses_ok(); } # if you have modules that'll fail use_ok() for themselves use strict; use Test::UseAllModules; BEGIN { all_uses_ok except => qw( Some::Dependent::Module Another::Dependent::Module ^Yet::Another::Dependent::.* # you can use regex ) } DESCRIPTION
I'm sick of writing 00_load.t (or something like that) that'll do use_ok() for every module I write. I'm sicker of updating 00_load.t when I add another file to the distro. This module reads MANIFEST to find modules to be tested and does use_ok() for each of them. Now all you have to do is update MANIFEST. You don't have to modify the test any more (hopefully). EXPORTED FUNCTION
all_uses_ok Does Test::More's use_ok() for every module found in MANIFEST. If you have modules you don't want to test, give those modules or some regex rules as the argument. The word 'except' is ignored as shown above. As of 0.11, you can also test modules under arbitrary directories by providing a directory list at the loading time (the word 'under' is ignored as shown above). Modules under the lib directory are always tested. PROTECTED FUNCTION
_get_module_list Returns module paths to test. This function will not be exported. If you want to use this (see below), you always need to call it by the full qualified name. NOTES
As of 0.03, this module calls BAIL_OUT of Test::More if any of the use_ok tests should fail. (Thus the following tests will be ignored. Missing or unloadable modules cause a lot of errors of the same kind.) As of 0.12, you can add extra tests before/after all_uses_ok() if you explicitly declare test plan like this. use strict; use warnings; use Test::More; use Test::UseAllModules; use Test::NoWarnings; plan tests => Test::UseAllModules::_get_module_list() + 1; all_uses_ok(); # and extra nowarnings test SEE ALSO
There're several modules like this on the CPAN now. Test::Compile and a bit confusing Test::LoadAllModules try to find modules to test by traversing directories. I'm not a big fun of them as they tend to find temporary or unrelated modules as well, but they may be handier especially if you're too lazy to update MANIFEST every time. AUTHOR
