Run Individual Test::Class Methods via Vim

A couple of years ago I had a simplistic way to run Test::Class methods on my use.perl blog. Unfortunately, it littered the test class with $ENV{TEST_METHOD} assignments. I should have fixed that. Here's a better version:

noremap <buffer> <leader>tm ?^sub.*:.*Test<cr>w"zye:!TEST_METHOD='<c-r>z' prove -v %<cr>

With that, if your cursor is inside of a test method, typing ",tm" (without the quotes and assuming that a comma is your leader), will run just that test method.

If you can't run your Test::Class classes directly, see my in-depth tutorial on Test::Class.
