"IO::Async::LoopTests" - acceptance testing for IO::Async::Loop subclasses
run_tests( 'IO::Async::Loop::Shiney', 'io' );
This module contains a collection of test functions for running acceptance
tests on IO::Async::Loop subclasses. It is provided as a facility for
authors of such subclasses to ensure that the code conforms to the Loop API
required by IO::Async.
Certain tests require the use of timers or timed delays. Normally these are
counted in units of seconds. By setting the environment variable
to some true value, these timers run 10 times quicker,
being measured in units of 0.1 seconds instead. This value may be useful when
running the tests interactively, to avoid them taking too long. The slower
timers are preferred on automated smoke-testing machines, to help guard
against false negatives reported simply because of scheduling delays or high
system load while testing.
TEST_QUICK_TIMERS=1 ./Build test
run_tests( $class, @tests )
Runs a test or collection of tests against the loop subclass given. The class
being tested is loaded by this function; the containing script does not need
to "require" or "use" it first.
This function runs "Test::More::plan" to output its expected test count; the
containing script should not do this.
The following test suite names exist, to be passed as a name in the @tests
argument to "run_tests"
Tests the Loop's ability to watch filehandles for IO
Tests the Loop's ability to handle timer events
Tests the Loop's ability to watch POSIX
Tests the Loop's support for idle handlers
Tests the Loop's support for watching child processes by PID
Tests that the "run"
