NAME

simple_report - Ultra-compact TAP summary

SYNOPSIS

  # For a one-line summary:
  % simple_scan <ss.in 2>&1 | simple_report MyLabel
  MyLabel: tests=9, ok=8, failed=1, skipped=1, todo=2 (1 UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED)

  # For the summary plus a one-line comment for failed 
  # tests and unexpectedly-suceeding TODO tests:
  % simple_scan <ss.in 2>&1 | simple_report -v MyLabel
  MyLabel: tests=9, ok=8, failed=1, skipped=1, todo=2 (1 UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED)
  F 7 Broken test
  T 9 unexpected success

  # For the summary plus one-line comment plus diagnostics:
  % simple_scan <ss.in 2>&1 | simple_report -v -v MyLabel
  MyLabel: tests=9, ok=8, failed=1, skipped=1, todo=2 (1 UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED)
  F 7 Deliberately broken test (zorch) [http://zorch.mysite.com/] [/fnord/ should match]
  #   Failed test 'Deliberately broken test (zorch) [http://zorch.mysite.com] [/fnord/ should match]'
  #   in /home/y/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/Test/WWW/Simple.pm at line 65.

DESCRIPTION

Raw TAP output is often lengthy, making it difficult to spot tests that have failed. simple_report is a TAP filter: it reads TAP output from its standard input, and creates a compact report as to

  • number of tests run

  • number of tests passed

  • number of tests failed

  • number of tests skipped

  • number of TODO tests (and number unexpectedly passing, if any)

If you want to see the test comments from the tests which failed, add --verbose (or -v for the lazy) to get a one-line printout of the failing (and unexpectedly-succeeding) tests as well.

If you want to see all of the diag messages as well, specify -v -v (that's two --verbose options).

If you've installed WWW::Mechanize::Plugin::Snapshot and snapshots were taken, a one-line diag will be printed showing you where the snapshot was stored.

If you're running simple_report as part of a pipe from simple_scan, you may want to use the -s option. This outputs a status message each time another test runs, culminating in the standard reports that simple_report outputs. The status messages all begin with '# ', so they're easy to filter out of your final output if you only want the report output.

INTERFACE

See the DESCRIPTION section.

DIAGNOSTICS

If you do not specify a test name as the first argument, UNNAMED_TEST is assumed.

Output will indicate no tests were run if the input is not valid TAP:

  > perldoc simple_report | simple_report
  UNNAMED_TEST: tests=0, ok=0, failed=0, skipped=0, todo=0
