NAME

       Test::Mock::Time - Deterministic time & timers for event loop tests

VERSION

       This document describes Test::Mock::Time version v0.1.7

SYNOPSIS

         use Test::Mock::Time;

         # All these functions will return same constant time
         # until you manually move time forward by some deterministic
         # value by sleep(), ff() or doing one tick of your event loop.
         say time();
         say localtime();
         say gmtime();
         say Time::HiRes::time();
         say Time::HiRes::gettimeofday();
         say Time::HiRes::clock_gettime(CLOCK_REALTIME());
         say Time::HiRes::clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC());

         # All these functions will fast-forward time (so time() etc.
         # will return increased value on next call) and return immediately.
         # Pending timers of your event loop (if any) will not be processed.
         sleep(1);
         Time::HiRes::sleep(0.5);
         Time::HiRes::usleep(500_000);
         Time::HiRes::nanosleep(500_000_000);
         Time::HiRes::clock_nanosleep(500_000_000);

         # This will fast-forward time and process pending timers (if any).
         ff(0.5);

         # These will call ff() in case no other (usually I/O) event happens in
         # $Test::Mock::Time::WAIT_ONE_TICK seconds of real time and there are
         # some active timers.
         Mojo::IOLoop->one_tick;
         EV::run(EV::RUN_ONCE);

DESCRIPTION

       This module replaces actual time with simulated time everywhere (core time(), Time::HiRes,
       EV, AnyEvent with EV, Mojolicious, X) and provide a way to write deterministic tests for
       event loop based applications with timers.

       IMPORTANT! This module must be loaded by your script/app/test before other related modules
       (Time::HiRes, Mojolicious, EV, etc.).

EXPORTS

       These functions are exported by default:

           ff

INTERFACE

   WAIT_ONE_TICK
           $Test::Mock::Time::WAIT_ONE_TICK = 0.05;

       This value is used to limit amount of real time spend waiting for non-timer (usually I/O)
       event while one tick of event loop if there are some active timers. In case no events
       happens while this time event loop will be interrupted and time will be fast-forward to
       time when next timer should expire by calling ff().

   ff
           ff( $seconds );
           ff();

       Fast-forward current time by $seconds (can be fractional). All functions like time() will
       returns previous value increased by $seconds after that.

       Will run callbacks for pending timers of your event loop if they'll expire while $seconds
       or if they've already expired (because you've used functions like sleep() which fast-
       forward time without processing timers).

       When called without params will fast-forward time by amount needed to run callback for
       next pending timer (it may be 0 in case there are no pending timers or if next pending
       timer already expired).
