NAME

       PerlX::Assert - yet another assertion keyword

SYNOPSIS

          use PerlX::Assert;

          assert { 1 >= 10 };

DESCRIPTION

       PerlX::Assert is a framework for embedding assertions in Perl code.  Under normal
       circumstances, assertions are not checked; they are optimized away at compile time.

       However if, at compile time, any of the following environment variables is true,
       assertions are checked, and if they fail, throw an exception.

       ·   "PERL_STRICT"

       ·   "AUTHOR_TESTING"

       ·   "EXTENDED_TESTING"

       ·   "RELEASE_TESTING"

       That is, assertions will only typically be checked when the test suite is being run on the
       authors' machine, or otherwise opted into.

       The exact decision logic can be found in Devel::StrictMode.

       You can also force assertions to be checked using:

          use PerlX::Assert -check;

       There are four syntaxes for expressing assertions:

          assert EXPR;
          assert { BLOCK };
          assert "name", EXPR;
          assert "name" { BLOCK };

       Assertions can be named, which is probably a good idea because this module (and the rest
       of Moops) screws up Perl's reporting of line numbers. Names must be a quoted string
       (single or double quotes, or the "q" or "qq" quote-like operators); general expressions
       are not supported because Text::Balanced is used to parse the assertion name. An assertion
       is a statement, so must be followed by a semicolon unless it's the last statement in a
       block.

       PerlX::Assert was originally distributed as part of Moops, but was fairly independent of
       the rest of it, and has been spun off as a separate release, and backported to Perl 5.8.1.

       Assertions that span multiple lines are very likely to cause problems on versions of Perl
       prior to 5.12. If the "assert" keyword, the entire name, and the start of the expression
       or block are all on the same line, this should be sufficient.
