|Subject:||use of [ExtraTests] on this dist leads to lots of wasted CPU time in install|
After seeing my computer spend more than 30 seconds running this test suite emitting nothing other than "SKIPPED" lines I decided to investigate.
I made a fork of the current CPAN release and nuked all the tests that actually ran :
so I could *just* test the skipped ones.
On my machine:
time prove --timer -lr t/
Files=723, Tests=0, 64 wallclock secs ( 3.73 usr 2.84 sys + 37.89 cusr 10.97 csys = 55.43 CPU)
And on Mithaldus much faster computer with an SSD .... but under windows *( which has a reputation for perl being a bit slow to start ):
Files=723, Tests=0, 52 wallclock secs ( 2.24 usr 1.83 sys + 21.36 cusr 22.19 csys = 47.61 CPU)
23.79user 24.17system 0:52.30elapsed 91%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 1012662272maxresident)k
These tests would very much be better off not re-written to t/
