Test::Magpie::Spy - A look into the invocation history of a mock for verifaciotn


Spy objects allow you to look inside a mock and verify that certain methods have been called. You create these objects by using verify from Test::Magpie.

Spy objects do not have a public API as such; they share the same method calls as the mock object itself. The difference being, a method call now checks that the method was invoked on the mock at some point in time, and if not, fails a test.

You may use argument matchers in verification method calls.
