Test::TypeTiny - useful functions for testing the efficacy of type constraints
use Types::Mine qw(Integer Number);
This module is covered by the Type-Tiny stability policy.
Test::TypeTiny provides a few handy functions for testing type constraints.
should_pass($value, $type, $test_name)
Test that passes iff $value passes $type->check.
should_fail($value, $type, $test_name)
Test that passes iff $value fails $type->check.
Test that passes iff all @subtypes are subtypes of $type.
Exportable boolean constant.
Assistant for matching exceptions. Not exported by default. See also Test::Fatal::matchfor.
If the EXTENDED_TESTING environment variable is set to true, this module will promote each should_pass or should_fail test into a subtest block and test the type constraint in both an inlined and non-inlined manner.
This variable must be set at compile time (i.e. before this module is loaded).
Please report any bugs to https://github.com/tobyink/p5-type-tiny/issues.
For an alternative to should_pass, see Test::Deep::Type which will happily accept a Type::Tiny type constraint instead of a MooseX::Types one.
