Documentation for sub
todo assembled from the following types:
multi sub todo(, = 1)
Sometimes tests just aren't ready to be run, for instance a feature might not yet be implemented, in which case tests can be marked as
todo. Or it could be the case that a given feature only works on a particular platform - in which case one would
skip the test on other platforms.
$count tests as TODO, giving a
$reason as to why. By default only one test will be marked TODO.
sub my-custom-pi ;todo 'not yet precise enough'; # Mark the test as TODO.is my-custom-pi(), pi, 'my-custom-pi'; # Run the test, but don't report# failure in test harness.
The result from the test code above will be something like:
not ok 1 - my-custom-pi# TODO not yet precise enough# Failed test 'my-custom-pi'# at test-todo.t line 7# expected: '3.14159265358979'# got: '3'
Note that if you
subtest, all of the failing tests inside of it will be automatically marked TODO as well and will not count towards your original TODO count.
