perl-test-most 0.35 — Most commonly needed test functions and features

This module provides the most commonly used testing functions, along with automatically turning on strict and warning and gives a bit more fine-grained control over test suites.

perl-test-needs 0.002005 — Skip tests when modules not available

Test::Needs allows you to skip test scripts if modules are not available. The requested modules will be loaded, and optionally have their versions checked. If the module is missing, the test script will be skipped. Modules that are found but fail to compile will exit with an error rather than skip.

If used in a subtest, the remainder of the subtest will be skipped.

perl-test-notabs 2.02 — Check the presence of tabs in your project

Test::NoTabs lets you check the presence of tabs in your perl code.

perl-test-nowarnings 1.04 — Ensure no warnings are produced while testing

This modules causes any warnings during testing to be captured and stored. It automatically adds an extra test that will run when your script ends to check that there were no warnings. If there were any warnings, the test will fail and output diagnostics of where, when and what the warning was, including a stack trace of what was going on when it occurred.

perl-test-number-delta 1.06 — Compare the difference between numbers against a given tolerance

At some point or another, most programmers find they need to compare floating-point numbers for equality. The typical idiom is to test if the absolute value of the difference of the numbers is within a desired tolerance, usually called epsilon. This module provides such a function for use with Test::More.

perl-test-output 1.031 — Utilities to test STDOUT and STDERR messages

Test::Output provides a simple interface for testing output sent to STDOUT or STDERR. A number of different utilities are included to try and be as flexible as possible to the tester.

perl-test-perltidy 20130104 — Check that all your Perl files are tidy

Using Test::PerlTidy, any file ending in .pl, .pm, .t or .PL will cause a test fail unless it is exactly as perltidy would like it to be.

perl-test-pod 1.52 — Check for POD errors in files

Check POD files for errors or warnings in a test file, using Pod::Simple to do the heavy lifting.

perl-test-pod-coverage 1.10 — Check for pod coverage

This module adds a test to your Perl distribution which checks for pod coverage of all appropriate files.

perl-test-requires 0.10 — Checks to see if the module can be loaded

Test::Requires checks to see if the module can be loaded. If this fails, then rather than failing tests this skips all tests.

perl-test-requiresinternet 0.05 — Easily test network connectivity when running tests

This Perl module is intended to easily test network connectivity to non-local Internet resources before functional tests begin. If the sockets cannot connect to the specified hosts and ports, the exception is caught and reported, and the tests skipped.

Test::Roo provides composable, reusable tests with roles.

perl-test-runvalgrind 0.2.0 — Tests that an external program is valgrind-clean

Test::Simple contains basic utilities for writing tests.

perl-test-taint 1.06 — Checks for taintedness of variables

Tainted data is data that comes from an unsafe source, such as the command line, or, in the case of web apps, any GET or POST transactions. Read the perlsec man page for details on why tainted data is bad, and how to untaint the data.

When you're writing unit tests for code that deals with tainted data, you'll want to have a way to provide tainted data for your routines to handle, and easy ways to check and report on the taintedness of your data, in standard Test::More style.

perl-test-tcp 2.06 — Testing TCP programs

Test::TCP is test utilities for TCP/IP programs.

perl-test-tester 0.109 — Simplify running Test::Builder tests

perl-test-trap 0.3.3 — Trap exit codes, exceptions, output, and so on

This module is primarily (but not exclusively) for use in test scripts: A block eval configurable and extensible but by default trapping STDOUT, STDERR, warnings, exceptions, would-be exit codes, and return values from boxed blocks of test code.

perl-test-utf8 1.01 — UTF-8 testing in Perl

This module is a collection of tests useful for dealing with UTF-8 strings in Perl. This module has two types of tests: The validity tests check if a string is valid and not corrupt, whereas the characteristics tests will check that string has a given set of characteristics.

perl-test-warn 0.30 — Perl extension to test methods for warnings

This module provides a few convenience methods for testing warning based code.

perl-test-warnings 0.026 — Test for warnings and the lack of them

This module is intended to be used as a drop-in replacement for Test::NoWarnings. It also adds an extra test, but runs this test before done_testing calculates the test count, rather than after. It does this by hooking into done_testing as well as via an END block. You can declare a plan, or not, and things will still Just Work.

perl-test-without-module 0.20 — Test fallback behaviour in absence of modules

This module allows you to deliberately hide modules from a program even though they are installed. This is mostly useful for testing modules that have a fallback when a certain dependency module is not installed.

Text::Diff provides a basic set of services akin to the GNU diff utility. It is not anywhere near as feature complete as GNU diff, but it is better integrated with Perl and available on all platforms.

  use Text::Markdown::Discount;
  my $html = markdown($text)

perl-text-unidecode 1.23 — Provide plain ASCII transliterations of Unicode text

Text::Unidecode provides a function, unidecode(...) that takes Unicode data and tries to represent it in US-ASCII characters (i.e., the universally displayable characters between 0x00 and 0x7F). The representation is almost always an attempt at transliteration-- i.e., conveying, in Roman letters, the pronunciation expressed by the text in some other writing system.

perl-type-tiny 1.002002 — Tiny, yet Moo(se)-compatible type constraint

Type::Tiny is a small class for writing type constraints, inspired by Moose's type constraint API. It has only one non-core dependency (and even that is simply a module that was previously distributed as part of Type::Tiny but has since been spun off), and can be used with Moose, Mouse and Moo (or none of the above).

perl-type-tiny-xs 0.012 — Provides an XS boost for some of Type::Tiny's built-in type constraints

This module is optionally used by Type::Tiny to provide faster, C-based implementations of some type constraints. This package has only core dependencies, and does not depend on Type::Tiny, so other data validation frameworks might also consider using it.

perl-types-path-tiny 0.005 — Types and coercions for Moose and Moo

This module provides Path::Tiny types for Moose, Moo, etc. It handles two important types of coercion: coercing objects with overloaded stringification, and coercing to absolute paths. It also can check to ensure that files or directories exist.

perl-variable-magic 0.62 — Associate user-defined magic to variables from Perl

Magic is Perl's way of enhancing variables. This mechanism lets the user add extra data to any variable and hook syntactical operations (such as access, assignment or destruction) that can be applied to it. With this module, you can add your own magic to any variable without having to write a single line of XS.

perl-xml-descent 1.04 — Recursive descent XML parsing

The conventional models for parsing XML are either DOM (a data structure representing the entire document tree is created) or SAX (callbacks are issued for each element in the XML).

XML grammar is recursive - so it's nice to be able to write recursive parsers for it. XML::Descent allows such parsers to be created.
