TAP::Convert::TET - Convert TAP to TET

VERSION

This document describes TAP::Convert::TET version 0.2.1

SYNOPSIS

    use TAP::Convert::TET;
    use TAP::Parser;
    
    # Output to STDOUT by default
    my $converter = TAP::Convert::TET->new;

    $converter->start;

    my $parser = TAP::Parser->new( { source => $fh } );
    $converter->convert( $parser, 'test' );

    $converter->end;

DESCRIPTION

Simpleminded converter that turns TAP into a TET journal. See http://tetworks.opengroup.org/ for more information about TET.

TET is used by the Linux Standard Base project. This module and the associated tap2tet program are intended to help integrate Perl's tests with LSB as part of an effort to incorporate Perl into LSB 3.2. See:

http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl5.porters/2007/05/msg124480.html

for more information.

INTERFACE

new( $options )

Create a new TAP::Convert::TET. Options may be passed as a hash:

    my @buffer = ( );
    # Capture output in an array
    my $converter = TAP::Convert::TET->new( { output => \@buffer } );

Available options are:

output

A filehandle, array reference or scalar reference to output the generated TET journal to. If a filehandle (or object that has a print method) is passed TET will be output to it. If a reference to an array is provided lines of TET will be appended to the array. If a scalar reference is provided the generated TET will be appended to the string.

Defaults to STDOUT.

tcc_version

The version of tcc to pretend to be. Defaults to '3.7a'.

time_format

The format string to use for timestamps. Defaults to '%H:%M:%S'.

datetime_format

The format string to use for date and time fields. Defaults to '%H:%M:%S %Y%m%d'.

program

The name of the program generating the TET output. Defaults to 'TAP::Convert::TET'.

start

Output the TET preamble. Call this before any calls to convert.

end

Output the TET postamble. Call this after any calls to convert.

convert( $parser, $name )

Read test results from a TAP::Parser instance and output them in TET format. The optional $name parameter may be used to provide the name of the test script that was the original source of the results.

Convert may be called more than once to merge multiple TAP transcripts into a single TET journal.

write( $string )

Write a line to the TET output stream. Internal use.

tet( $code, $data, $text )

Write a formatted TET journal entry to the output stream.
