       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.


       ยท   Allow testing of log levels.
