Subject: Version 3 no longer supports the HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES environment variable
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 442b
Version 2 of Test::Harness used to support a HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES. This was commonly used with Devel::Cover, which suggests the following early on in its documentation: cover -delete HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-MDevel::Cover make test cover It seems version 3 no longer supports this: the example above doesn't generate a cover_db for me and I don't see any reference to the environment variable in TAP::Parser's code or documenation.

Test::Harness 3 does support HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES. I've just tried it here and it's definitely working. Could you add a test like this to your project: warn " # Switches: $ENV{HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES}\n"; print "1..1\nok 1\n"; and do HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES=-f make test and let me know what you see please?

Yes, you're right. I'm not sure how I managed to confuse myself otherwise. Apologies for the noise. Tom

Don't worry about it - it prompted me to add test coverage for HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES which inexplicably we didn't have - so I'm grateful that you brought my attention to it :)
