Subject: diag output available in data structure
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.1k
Hello there. I played with Test::TAP::Model to generate (html/xml) reports. I noticed that the 'diags' fields were not populated within the data structures. I wanted to have all the precious error codes and diag info logged somewhere... I also saw the patch to enable test script logging into a file-handle (did not try it yet, will try tomorrow...). Here is an observation: I traced the issue to within around line 294 in the analyze_file sub (the pipe- open that reads-in a single test file for execution). I noticed that STDERR is vented out without much attention. Here are the questions: I decided to modify the pipe spec to "$line 2>&1 |", merging back all the output before analysis. Do you forsee any problem if I leave this merged output in there ? Is there anything simpler I could have done instead ? In the meantime, I created a proprietary module that 'use base Test::TAP::Model;' with a redefined 'analyze_file' method. This trick solves my problems. I just wanted to have insight into the potential pitfalls... Thanks, FX (linux-debian-sarge, perl 5.8.4, need to port this to win32/cygwin sometime soon...)

TAP 13 which is supported by Test::Harness 2.99 allows structured YAML diagnostics and Test::TAP::Model will be being updated to support them.
