1 GTestRunner Screenshot:
GTestRunner is a Gtk based testrunner module for Perl, inspired by JUnit, but with a slightly different user interface and functionality.

If you were not satisfied with the Tk based graphical frontend that ships with Test-Unit, then GTestRunner is probably the tool of choice when you want to do test driven development in Perl.

It also offers some improvements over the other test runner modules that ship with Test-Unit. You can browse through the tree of test suites, and select individual test suites, test cases and even individual tests to run.

You can use this module in two different ways. Most users will just want to run the script "gtestrunner" to run their test suites. If you want to integrate unit testing into your own software, you will probably use the module Test::Unit::GTestRunner.

Some stupid test suites and test cases are included with this package. Try

gtestrunner Suites/


gtestrunner Suites::TS_TopLevel

to see gtestrunner in action. The test suites fails five times, and you have probably guessed that this is intentionally, so that you can see all features.

GTestRunner is fully internationalized. See the file README-NLS for details. See the file TRANSLATIONS for information about the currently available languages. Feel free to contact the author if you want to contribute a translation for your own native langauge.
