NAME

       Test::Spelling - Check for spelling errors in POD files

SYNOPSIS

       Place a file, "pod-spell.t" in your distribution's "xt/author" directory:

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

           use Test::Spelling;
           use Pod::Wordlist;

           add_stopwords(<DATA>);
           all_pod_files_spelling_ok( qw( bin lib ) );

           __DATA__
           SomeBizarreWord
           YetAnotherBIzarreWord

       Or, you can gate the spelling test with the environment variable "AUTHOR_TESTING":

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

           BEGIN {
               plan skip_all => "Spelling tests only for authors"
                   unless $ENV{AUTHOR_TESTING};
           }

           use Test::Spelling;
           use Pod::Wordlist;

           all_pod_files_spelling_ok();

DESCRIPTION

       Test::Spelling lets you check the spelling of a "POD" file, and report its results in
       standard Test::More fashion. This module requires a spellcheck program such as Hunspell
       <http://hunspell.github.io/>, aspell, spell, or, ispell. We suggest using Hunspell.

           use Test::Spelling;
           pod_file_spelling_ok('lib/Foo/Bar.pm', 'POD file spelling OK');

       Note that it is a bad idea to run spelling tests during an ordinary CPAN distribution
       install, or in a package that will run in an uncontrolled environment. There is no way of
       predicting whether the word list or spellcheck program used will give the same results.
       You can include the test in your distribution, but be sure to run it only for authors of
       the module by guarding it in a "skip_all unless $ENV{AUTHOR_TESTING}" clause, or by
       putting the test in your distribution's xt/author directory. Anyway, people installing
       your module really do not need to run such tests, as it is unlikely that the documentation
       will acquire typos while in transit.

       You can add your own stop words, which are words that should be ignored by the spell
       check, like so:

           add_stopwords(qw(asdf thiswordiscorrect));

       Adding stop words in this fashion affects all files checked for the remainder of the test
       script. See Pod::Spell (which this module is built upon) for a variety of ways to add per-
       file stop words to each .pm file.

       If you have a lot of stop words, it's useful to put them in your test file's "DATA"
       section like so:

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

           use Test::Spelling;
           use Pod::Wordlist;

           add_stopwords(<DATA>);
           all_pod_files_spelling_ok();

           __DATA__
           folksonomy
           Jifty
           Zakirov

       To maintain backwards compatibility, comment markers and some whitespace are ignored. In
       the near future, the preprocessing we do on the arguments to "add_stopwords" in
       Test::Spelling will be changed and documented properly.

FUNCTIONS

       Test::Spelling makes the following methods available.

   add_stopwords
         add_stopwords(@words);
         add_stopwords(<DATA>); # pull in stop words from the DATA section

       Add words that should be skipped by the spell checker. Note that Pod::Spell already skips
       words believed to be code, such as everything in verbatim (indented) blocks and code
       marked up with ""..."", as well as some common Perl jargon.

   all_pod_files
         all_pod_files();
         all_pod_files(@list_of_directories);

       Returns a list of all the Perl files in each directory and its subdirectories,
       recursively. If no directories are passed, it defaults to blib if blib exists, or else lib
       if not. Skips any files in CVS or .svn directories.

       A Perl file is:

       ·   Any file that ends in .PL, .pl, .plx, .pm, .pod or .t.

       ·   Any file that has a first line with a shebang and "perl" on it.

       Furthermore, files for which the filter set by "set_pod_file_filter" return false are
       skipped. By default, this filter passes everything through.

       The order of the files returned is machine-dependent.  If you want them sorted, you'll
       have to sort them yourself.

   all_pod_files_spelling_ok
         all_pod_files_spelling_ok(@list_of_files);
         all_pod_files_spelling_ok(@list_of_directories);

       Checks all the files for "POD" spelling. It gathers "all_pod_files" in Test::Spelling on
       each file/directory, and declares a "plan" in Test::More for you (one test for each file),
       so you must not call "plan" yourself.

       If @files is empty, the function finds all "POD" files in the blib directory if it exists,
       or the lib directory if it does not. A "POD" file is one that ends with .pod, .pl, .plx,
       or .pm; or any file where the first line looks like a perl shebang line.

       If there is no working spellchecker (determined by
       <Test:Spelling/"has_working_spellchecker">), this test will issue a "skip all" directive.

       If you're testing a distribution, just create an xt/author/pod-spell.t with the code in
       the "SYNOPSIS".

       Returns true if every "POD" file has correct spelling, or false if any of them fail.  This
       function will show any spelling errors as diagnostics.

       * NOTE: This only tests using bytes. This is not decoded content, etc. Do not expect this
       to work with Unicode content, for example. This uses an open with no layers and no
       decoding.

   get_pod_parser
         # a Pod::Spell -like object
         my $object = get_pod_parser();

       Get the object we're using to parse the "POD". A new Pod::Spell object should be used for
       every file. People providing custom parsers will have to do this themselves.

   has_working_spellchecker
         my $cmd = has_working_spellchecker;

       "has_working_spellchecker" will return "undef" if there is no working spellchecker, or a
       true value (the spellchecker command itself) if there is.  The module performs a dry-run
       to determine whether any of the spellcheckers it can will use work on the current system.
       You can use this to skip tests if there is no spellchecker. Note that
       "all_pod_files_spelling_ok" will do this for you.

       A full list of spellcheckers which this method might test can be found in the source of
       the "spellchecker_candidates" method.

   pod_file_spelling_ok
         pod_file_spelling_ok('/path/to/Foo.pm');
         pod_file_spelling_ok('/path/to/Foo.pm', 'Foo is well spelled!');

       "pod_file_spelling_ok" will test that the given "POD" file has no spelling errors.

       When it fails, "pod_file_spelling_ok" will show any spelling errors as diagnostics.

       The optional second argument is the name of the test.  If it is omitted,
       "pod_file_spelling_ok" chooses a default test name "POD spelling for $filename".

       * NOTE: This only tests using bytes. This is not decoded content, etc. Do not expect this
       to work with Unicode content, for example. This uses an open with no layers and no
       decoding.

   set_pod_file_filter
           # code ref
           set_pod_file_filter(sub {
               my $filename = shift;
               return 0 if $filename =~ /_ja.pod$/; # skip Japanese translations
               return 1;
           });

       If your project has "POD" documents written in languages other than English, then
       obviously you don't want to be running a spellchecker on every Perl file.
       "set_pod_file_filter" lets you filter out files returned from "all_pod_files" (and hence,
       the documents tested by "all_pod_files_spelling_ok").

   set_pod_parser
         my $object = Pod::Spell->new();
         set_pod_parser($object);

       By default Pod::Spell is used to generate text suitable for spellchecking from the input
       POD.  If you want to use a different parser, perhaps a customized subclass of Pod::Spell,
       call "set_pod_parser" with an object that is-a Pod::Parser.  Be sure to create a fresh
       parser object for each file (don't use this with "all_pod_files_spelling_ok").

   set_spell_cmd
         set_spell_cmd('hunspell -l'); # current preferred
         set_spell_cmd('aspell list');
         set_spell_cmd('spell');
         set_spell_cmd('ispell -l');

       If you want to force this module to use a particular spellchecker, then you can specify
       which one with "set_spell_cmd". This is useful to ensure a more consistent lexicon between
       developers, or if you have an unusual environment.  Any command that takes text from
       standard input and prints a list of misspelled words, one per line, to standard output
       will do.
