Test::Log::Dispatch -- Test what you are logging
use Test::More; use Test::Log::Dispatch; my $log = Test::Log::Dispatch->new(); # ... # call something that logs to $log # ... # now test to make sure you logged the right things $log->contains_ok(qr/good log message/, "good message was logged"); $log->does_not_contain_ok(qr/unexpected log message/, "unexpected message was not logged"); $log->empty_ok("no more logs"); # or my $msgs = $log->msgs; cmp_deeply($msgs, ['msg1', 'msg2', 'msg3']);
"Test::Log::Dispatch" is a "Log::Dispatch" object that keeps track of everything logged to it in memory, and provides convenient tests against what has been logged.
The constructor returns a "Test::Log::Dispatch" object, which inherits from "Log::Dispatch" and contains a single "Log::Dispatch::Array" output at 'debug' level. The constructor requires no parameters. Any parameters will be forwarded to the "Log::Dispatch::Array" constructor. For example, you can pass a min_level to override the default 'debug'.
The test_name is optional in the *_ok methods; a reasonable default will be provided. contains_ok ($regex[, $test_name]) Tests that a message in the log buffer matches $regex. On success, the message is removed from the log buffer (but any other matches are left untouched). does_not_contain_ok ($regex[, $test_name]) Tests that no message in the log buffer matches $regex. empty_ok ([$test_name]) Tests that there is no log buffer left. On failure, the log buffer is cleared to limit further cascading failures. contains_only_ok ($regex[, $test_name]) Tests that there is a single message in the log buffer and it matches $regex. On success, the message is removed. clear () Clears the log buffer. msgs () Returns the current contents of the log buffer as an array reference, where each element is a hash containing a message and level key.
