       Test::FailWarnings - Add test failures if warnings are caught


       version 0.008


       Test file:

           use strict;
           use warnings;
           use Test::More;
           use Test::FailWarnings;

           ok( 1, "first test" );
           ok( 1 + "lkadjaks", "add non-numeric" );



           ok 1 - first test
           not ok 2 - Test::FailWarnings should catch no warnings
           #   Failed test 'Test::FailWarnings should catch no warnings'
           #   at t/bin/ line 7.
           # Warning was 'Argument "lkadjaks" isn't numeric in addition (+) at t/bin/ line 7.'
           ok 3 - add non-numeric
           # Looks like you failed 1 test of 3.


       This module hooks $SIG{__WARN__} and converts warnings to Test::More "fail()" calls.  It
       is designed to be used with "done_testing", when you don't need to know the test count in

       Just as with Test::NoWarnings, this does not catch warnings if other things localize
       $SIG{__WARN__}, as this is designed to catch unhandled warnings.


   Overriding $SIG{__WARN__}
       On "import", $SIG{__WARN__} is replaced with "Test::FailWarnings::handler".

           use Test::FailWarnings;  # global

       If you don't want global replacement, require the module instead and localize in whatever
       scope you want.

           require Test::FailWarnings;

               local $SIG{__WARN__} = \&Test::FailWarnings::handler;
               # ... warnings will issue fail() here

       When the handler reports on the source of the warning, it will look past any calling
       packages starting with "Carp" or "warnings" to try to detect the real origin of the

   Allowing warnings from dependencies
       If you want to ignore failures from outside your own code, you can set
       $Test::FailWarnings::ALLOW_DEPS to a true value.  You can do that on the "use" line with

           use Test::FailWarnings -allow_deps => 1;

       When true, warnings will only be thrown if they appear to originate from a filename
       matching "qr/^(?:t|xt|lib|blib)/"

   Allowing warnings from specific modules
       If you want to white-list specific modules only, you can add their package names to
       @Test::NoWarnings::ALLOW_FROM.  You can do that on the "use" line with "-allow_from".

           use Test::FailWarnings -allow_from => [ qw/Annoying::Module/ ];


       ·   Test::NoWarnings -- catches warnings and reports in an "END" block.  Not (yet)
           friendly with "done_testing".

       ·   Test::Warnings -- a replacement for Test::NoWarnings that works with done_testing

       ·   Test::Warn -- test for warnings without triggering failures from this modules
