Subject: Document exit code of prove utility
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 408b
The exit code of the prove utility is not yet documented. Currently it seems that 0 is returned on PASS, and !=0 is returned on FAIL or if there are any passing TODO tests. As passing TODO tests are not causing a failure in normal "make test", I would propose that it should not be a failure with prove, too. Alternatively there a new switch "--fail-on-passing-todo" could be introduced. Regards, Slaven

The behaviour of prove has been changed so that todo tests no longer result in a non-zero exit. I've just (r1287) added a note about the meaning of the exit code. Thanks!
