Subject: Add Support for lib
From: David Wheeler <david [...] kineticode.com>
To: bug-test-harness [...] rt.cpan.org
I like prove, but as it currently works, it does little for me that C<./Build|make test> does not. This is because I would mostly find it useful while doing development, rather than after running C<./Build|make>. Of course, it doesn't currently work unless you've run C<./Build|make>, because it's looking for 'blib'. I realize that I can add 'lib' by running C<prove -Ilib>, but it seems silly to do that, when Perl can easily be maid to C<-d blib> and use lib when it returns true. Can you add something like that? Then, prove will finally replace my old alias: alias harness="PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 perl \"-MExtUtils::Command::MM\" \"-e\" \"test_harness(1, 'lib', 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')\"" Thanks, David -- David Wheeler AIM: dwTheory david@kineticode.com ICQ: 15726394 http://www.kineticode.com/ Yahoo!: dew7e Jabber: Theory@jabber.org Kineticode.

Its not entirely safe to assume that the code in lib/ will execute or be the same as the code in blib/lib. With XS modules, that's right out. Even pure Perl modules might do some translation of the code as part of the build process. Also, many modules don't use lib/. I'd recommend against doing this, as its easily solved in other ways that don't involve adding possible junk to @INC (see below). If you do do this, be sure to put it *after* blib/. A simple alternative is this: perl Makefile.PL make && prove Another is this: alias prove="/path/to/prove -Ilib" -- Michael G Schwern schwern@pobox.com http://www.pobox.com/~schwern/ It's Yellowing Laudanum time!
