a) Contrary to the documentation, Test::Harness expects a whitespace after `# TODO' marker. For example, a test emiting not ok 6 # TODO: no brain found works if run as `perl TEST foo.t', but not if `perl harness foo.t'. [See the code matching $control below.] b) I can see stuff like my($name, $control) = split /(?:[^\\]|^)#/, $extra if $extra; my($type, $reason) = $control =~ /^\s*(\S+)(?:\s+(.*))?$/ if $control; followed by `if defined $type' [in Test/Harness/]. Given that $type contains line noise unless $extra and $control were TRUE, this is hardly a good choice... Thanks, Ilya
Docs now clarify that a space is required after the TODO.
