NAME

       Test2::Util::Grabber - Object used to temporarily intercept all events.

DESCRIPTION

       Once created this object will intercept and stash all events sent to the shared Test2::Hub
       object. Once the object is destroyed, events will once again be sent to the shared hub.

SYNOPSIS

           use Test2 qw/Core Grab/;

           my $grab = grab();

           # Generate some events, they are intercepted.
           ok(1, "pass");
           ok(0, "fail");

           my $events_a = $grab->flush;

           # Generate some more events, they are intercepted.
           ok(1, "pass");
           ok(0, "fail");

           # Same as flush, except it destroys the grab object.
           my $events_b = $grab->finish;

       After calling "finish()" the grab object is destroyed and $grab is set to undef. $events_a
       is an arrayref with the first two events. $events_b is an arrayref with the second two
       events.

EXPORTS

       $grab = grab()
           This lets you intercept all events for a section of code without adding anything to
           your call stack. This is useful for things that are sensitive to changes in the stack
           depth.

               my $grab = grab();
                   ok(1, 'foo');
                   ok(0, 'bar');

               # $grab is magically undef after this.
               my $events = $grab->finish;

               is(@$events, 2, "grabbed two events.");

           When you call "finish()" the $grab object will automagically undef itself, but only
           for the reference used in the method call. If you have other references to the $grab
           object they will not be set to undef.

           If the $grab object is destroyed without calling "finish()", it will automatically
           clean up after itself and restore the parent hub.

               {
                   my $grab = grab();
                   # Things are grabbed
               }
               # Things are back to normal

           By default the hub used has "no_ending" set to true. This will prevent the hub from
           enforcing that you issued a plan and ran at least one test. You can turn enforcement
           back one like this:

               $grab->hub->set_no_ending(0);

           With "no_ending" turned off, "finish" will run the post-test checks to enforce the
           plan and that tests were run. In many cases this will result in additional events in
           your events array.

METHODS

       $grab = $class->new()
           Create a new grab object, immediately starts intercepting events.

       $ar = $grab->flush()
           Get an arrayref of all the events so far, clearing the grab objects internal list.

       $ar = $grab->events()
           Get an arrayref of all events so far. Does not clear the internal list.

       $ar = $grab->finish()
           Get an arrayref of all the events, then destroy the grab object.

       $hub = $grab->hub()
           Get the hub that is used by the grab event.

ENDING BEHAVIOR

       By default the hub used has "no_ending" set to true. This will prevent the hub from
       enforcing that you issued a plan and ran at least one test. You can turn enforcement back
       one like this:

           $grab->hub->set_no_ending(0);

       With "no_ending" turned off, "finish" will run the post-test checks to enforce the plan
       and that tests were run. In many cases this will result in additional events in your
       events array.
