NAME

       Test2::Require - Base class and documentation for skip-unless type test packages.

DESCRIPTION

       Test2::Require::* packages are packages you load to ensure your test file is skipped
       unless a specific requirement is met. Modules in this namespace may subclass
       Test2::Require if they wish, but it is not strictly necessary to do so.

HOW DO I WRITE A 'REQUIRE' MODULE?

   AS A SUBCLASS
           package Test2::Require::Widget;
           use strict;
           use warnings;

           use base 'Test2::Require';

           sub HAVE_WIDGETS { ... };

           sub skip {
               my $class = shift;
               my @import_args = @_;

               if (HAVE_WIDGETS()) {
                   # We have widgets, do not skip
                   return undef;
               }
               else {
                   # No widgets, skip the test
                   return "Skipped because there are no widgets" unless HAVE_WIDGETS();
               }
           }

           1;

       A subclass of Test2::Require simply needs to implement a "skip()" method.  This method
       will receive all import arguments. This method should return undef if the test should run,
       and should return a reason for skipping if the test should be skipped.

   STAND-ALONE
       If you do not wish to subclass Test2::Require then you should write an "import()" method:

           package Test2::Require::Widget;
           use strict;
           use warnings;

           use Test2::API qw/context/;

           sub HAVE_WIDGETS { ... };

           sub import {
               my $class = shift;

               # Have widgets, should run.
               return if HAVE_WIDGETS();

               # Use the context object to create the event
               my $ctx = context();
               $ctx->plan(0, SKIP => "Skipped because there are no widgets");
               $ctx->release;
           }

           1;
