3.3 test coverage

I spent a bit of time playing with Devel::Cover and RT’s “make
regression” test suite today. A summary of the results are here:

Overall, the test coverage isn’t too bad, but I’d love it to be better.
If you’ve been wondering how you might be able to get started helping
out with RT, one way is to code up some new tests and submit them.

Best,

This was really beautiful. :slight_smile: I should do similar for my own projects.

Are the rules to generate this in the subversion source? I would love
to see how this is done.

It’s done with Devel::Cover. There is a great article at perl.com that
reviews test coverage, POD coverage and testing in general.

Also, if you used Module::Build, you can now just run ./build cover. That
action was added in the current development series of releases.
