cpantest - Report test results of a package retrieved from CPAN


cpantest uniformly posts package test results in support of the cpan-testers project. See http://testers.cpan.org/ for details.


    cpantest -g grade [ -nc ] [ -auto ] [ -p package ]
             [ -t text | -f file ] [ email-addresses ]

For MacPerl, save as a droplet, and drop a module archive or unpacked folder on the droplet.


-g grade

grade indicates the success or failure of the package's builtin tests, and is one of:

    grade     meaning
    -----     -------
    pass      all tests included with the package passed
    fail      some tests failed
    na        the package does not work on this platform
    unknown   the package did not include tests
-p package

package is the name of the package you are testing. If you don't supply a value on the command line, you will be prompted for one.


No comment; you will not be prompted to supply a comment about the package.

-t text

A short comment text line.

-f file

A file containing comments; '-' will make it read from STDIN. Note that an editor will still appear after reading this file.


Autosubmission (non-interactive); you won't be prompted to supply any information that you didn't provide on the command line. Implies -nc.


A list of additional email addresses that should be cc:'d in this report (typically, the package's author).


This version of the 'cpantest' script was adapted by Adam J. Foxson <afoxson@pobox.com> for Test::Reporter, and is based on Autrijus Tang's <autrijus@autrijus.org> adaptations for CPANPLUS, which is in turn based upon the original script by Kurt Starsinic <Kurt.Starsinic@isinet.com> with various patches from the CPAN Testers <cpan-testers@perl.org>.
