  • blog.urth.org commented on Test2/Test::Builder Update from the QAH

    Aristotle said:

    Thus the claim that Test modules would have to be written specifically against Test2, in order to be able to work with other Test2-based modules, is simply factually incorrect.

    That wasn't what I was trying to claim. Maybe I don't understand what you and Leon wanted to happen.

    My point was simply that Test2-using tools will not cooperate with code that uses the existing pre-Test2 Test::Builder. Of course, if Test::Builder is using Test2 under the hood, then tools using Test::Builder do not also have to change (but AFAICT no one is say…

    Yes, sorry, I’ll be publishing a long-form, detailed version of the proposal very soon. I’ve realised the proposal is (either largely or entirely) non-understood – the abridged version I presented on the fly at that table was insufficient. (I had hoped but failed to have it out there sufficiently early before the QAH that people could digest it in detail.)

    One of the initial options discussed as early as last year was this:

    Test2 and Test::Builder remain separate. Tools pick one a build with it. To use both together you load a shim such as Test2::Legacy, which replaces Test::Builder with the alternative guts.

    This was the alternative being discussed in the Test2 meeting on day 1 of the 2016 hackathon. We decided it was not the right plan. My main reason for opposing this plan is that nothing stops people from updating old modules to use Test2, and also auto-loading the shim to insure they do not break things that depend on them…

    1. The comment, if wrong, is not deliberate. I'm sorry to have to *actually* Google the exact meaning of "lie" (because people like throwing this word around). Here it is:

    "A false statement made with *deliberate intent* to deceive; an *intentional* untruth;" [Emphasis mine.]

    This means that, if it was wrong *and* deliberate (it might be wrong, it is *not* deliberate), it is a lie. You can stop using that word now. (Not that I assume you would...)

    2. The phrasing in the blog post you link to is inaccurate and misleading. (Not on purpose, I'm sure. No, I'm not sarcasti…

    Sawyer X

    thanks for your reply.

    I understand whether if Coro will work well in Perl 5.26.

    I had questions about only Coro. Sawyer X reply about it politely. Please don't blame him.
