Subject: PASS should be UNKNOWN when no real test were run

The report http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/6759235 is marked as a PASS, but I would expect to be it UNKNOWN instead - there is no indication in the test output that any test was run, or that the test result was PASS. Regards, Slaven

Tk has a recursive Makefile.PL. In such a case, the only reliable way to determine a result is to use the PASS/FAIL result of "make test". This behavior could be better documented, but is not expected to change. -- David

What exactly do you mean with PASS/FAIL? Neither string does not seem to appear in the test output. Do you mean the exit code of "make test"? And do you have a suggestion how I can force an UNKNOWN grade in such a case? I think of emitting a proper "skip_all" call, i.e. producing output like 1..0 # SKIP some reason But this will also appear multiple times in the output. Would this work? Regards, Slaven

Yes. If exit code is 0, then it's graded PASS, otherwise FAIL. FWIW, the same thing happens under Makefile.PL if there is a test.pl file, since test.pl isn't run through Test::Harness by Makefile.PL. (Build.PL does run test.pl through Test::Harness). Show quoted text

I'm not sure. Maybe don't write a "test" section to the Makefile? The latest CPAN::Reporter (1.1709) detects that and makes it UNKNOWN. Unfortunately, 1.1709 is failing tests and not universally adopted and I don't know what CPANPLUS does. I'd ask on the cpan-testers-discuss list for suggestions. -- David
