Subject: prove t/does_not_exist.t output pretty unfriendly
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 451b
If you feed prove a file or directory which does not exist, it vomits out a cryptic error message and a full stack trace. See attached for the full horror. Cannot detect source of 'whatwhat'! at /Users/schwern/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.1/lib/5.14.1/TAP/Parser/ line 263 It would be more friendly to the user if it just said: Can't find file or directory 'whatwhat'. with no stack trace or internal file/line number.
Subject: prove.out
Download prove.out
