NAME

       Test2::Suite - Distribution with a rich set of tools built upon the Test2 framework.

DESCRIPTION

       Rich set of tools, plugins, bundles, etc built upon the Test2 testing library. If you are
       interested in writing tests, this is the distribution for you.

   WHAT ARE TOOLS, PLUGINS, AND BUNDLES?
       TOOLS
           Tools are packages that export functions for use in test files. These functions
           typically generate events. Tools SHOULD NEVER alter behavior of other tools, or the
           system in general.

       PLUGINS
           Plugins are packages that produce effects, or alter behavior of tools. An example
           would be a plugin that causes the test to bail out after the first failure. Plugins
           SHOULD NOT export anything.

       BUNDLES
           Bundles are collections of tools and plugins. A bundle should load and re-export
           functions from Tool packages. A bundle may also load and configure any number of
           plugins.

       If you want to write something that both exports new functions, and effects behavior, you
       should write both a Tools distribution, and a Plugin distribution, then a Bundle that
       loads them both. This is important as it helps avoid the problem where a package exports
       much-desired tools, but also produces undesirable side effects.

INCLUDED BUNDLES

       Test2::V#
           These do not live in the bundle namespace as they are the primary ways to use
           Test2::Suite.

           The current latest is Test2::V0.

               use Test2::V0;
               # strict and warnings are on for you now.

               ok(...);

               # Note: is does deep checking, unlike the 'is' from Test::More.
               is(...);

               ...

               done_testing;

           This bundle includes every tool listed in the "INCLUDED TOOLS" section below, except
           for Test2::Tools::ClassicCompare. This bundle provides most of what anyone writing
           tests could need. This is also the preferred bundle/toolset of the Test2 author.

           See Test2::V0 for complete documentation.

       Extended
           ** Deprecated ** See Test2::V0

               use Test2::Bundle::Extended;
               # strict and warnings are on for you now.

               ok(...);

               # Note: is does deep checking, unlike the 'is' from Test::More.
               is(...);

               ...

               done_testing;

           This bundle includes every tool listed in the "INCLUDED TOOLS" section below, except
           for Test2::Tools::ClassicCompare. This bundle provides most of what anyone writing
           tests could need. This is also the preferred bundle/toolset of the Test2 author.

           See Test2::Bundle::Extended for complete documentation.

       More
               use Test2::Bundle::More;
               use strict;
               use warnings;

               plan 3; # Or you can use done_testing at the end

               ok(...);

               is(...); # Note: String compare

               is_deeply(...);

               ...

               done_testing; # Use instead of plan

           This bundle is meant to be a mostly drop-in replacement for Test::More.  There are
           some notable differences to be aware of however. Some exports are missing: "eq_array",
           "eq_hash", "eq_set", $TODO, "explain", "use_ok", "require_ok". As well it is no longer
           possible to set the plan at import: "use .. tests => 5". $TODO has been replaced by
           the "todo()" function. Planning is done using "plan", "skip_all", or "done_testing".

           See Test2::Bundle::More for complete documentation.

       Simple
               use Test2::Bundle::Simple;
               use strict;
               use warnings;

               plan 1;

               ok(...);

           This bundle is meant to be a mostly drop-in replacement for Test::Simple.  See
           Test2::Bundle::Simple for complete documentation.

INCLUDED TOOLS

       Basic
           Basic provides most of the essential tools previously found in Test::More.  However it
           does not export any tools used for comparison. The basic "pass", "fail", "ok"
           functions are present, as are functions for planning.

           See Test2::Tools::Basic for complete documentation.

       Compare
           This provides "is", "like", "isnt", "unlike", and several additional helpers. Note:
           These are all deep comparison tools and work like a combination of Test::More's "is"
           and "is_deeply".

           See Test2::Tools::Compare for complete documentation.

       ClassicCompare
           This provides Test::More flavored "is", "like", "isnt", "unlike", and "is_deeply". It
           also provides "cmp_ok".

           See Test2::Tools::ClassicCompare for complete documentation.

       Class
           This provides functions for testing objects and classes, things like "isa_ok".

           See Test2::Tools::Class for complete documentation.

       Defer
           This provides functions for writing test functions in one place, but running them
           later. This is useful for testing things that run in an altered state.

           See Test2::Tools::Defer for complete documentation.

       Encoding
           This exports a single function that can be used to change the encoding of all your
           test output.

           See Test2::Tools::Encoding for complete documentation.

       Exports
           This provides tools for verifying exports. You can verify that functions have been
           imported, or that they have not been imported.

           See Test2::Tools::Exports for complete documentation.

       Mock
           This provides tools for mocking objects and classes. This is based largely on
           Mock::Quick, but several interface improvements have been added that cannot be added
           to Mock::Quick itself without breaking backwards compatibility.

           See Test2::Tools::Mock for complete documentation.

       Ref This exports tools for validating and comparing references.

           See Test2::Tools::Ref for complete documentation.

       Spec
           This is an RSPEC implementation with concurrency support.

           See Test2::Tools::Spec for more details.

       Subtest
           This exports tools for running subtests.

           See Test2::Tools::Subtest for complete documentation.

       Target
           This lets you load the package(s) you intend to test, and alias them into
           constants/package variables.

           See Test2::Tools::Target for complete documentation.

INCLUDED PLUGINS

       BailOnFail
           The much requested "bail-out on first failure" plugin. When this plugin is loaded, any
           failure will cause the test to bail out immediately.

           See Test2::Plugin::BailOnFail for complete documentation.

       DieOnFail
           The much requested "die on first failure" plugin. When this plugin is loaded, any
           failure will cause the test to die immediately.

           See Test2::Plugin::DieOnFail for complete documentation.

       ExitSummary
           This plugin gives you statistics and diagnostics at the end of your test in the event
           of a failure.

           See Test2::Plugin::ExitSummary for complete documentation.

       SRand
           Use this to set the random seed to a specific seed, or to the current date.

           See Test2::Plugin::SRand for complete documentation.

       UTF8
           Turn on utf8 for your testing. This sets the current file to be utf8, it also sets
           STDERR, STDOUT, and your formatter to all output utf8.

           See Test2::Plugin::UTF8 for complete documentation.

INCLUDED REQUIREMENT CHECKERS

       AuthorTesting
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the AUTHOR_TESTING
           environment variable is set.

           See Test2::Require::AuthorTesting for complete documentation.

       EnvVar
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless a custom environment
           variable is set.

           See Test2::Require::EnvVar for complete documentation.

       Fork
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the system is capable
           of forking (including emulated forking).

           See Test2::Require::Fork for complete documentation.

       RealFork
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the system is capable
           of true forking.

           See Test2::Require::RealFork for complete documentation.

       Module
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the specified module
           is installed (and optionally at a minimum version).

           See Test2::Require::Module for complete documentation.

       Perl
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the specified minimum
           perl version is met.

           See Test2::Require::Perl for complete documentation.

       Threads
           Using this package will cause the test file to be skipped unless the system has
           threading enabled.

           Note: This will not turn threading on for you.

           See Test2::Require::Threads for complete documentation.
