If you don't know what a unit testing framework is or why you would want one, the links below will fill you in.
- Grab the current release from the SourceForge download area or from CPAN, where you can also read the POD.
- There is also the doc/ directory of the master branch, which includes a class diagram.
- We have two mailing lists, with archives:
- The code now lives in a Git
repository. This was initialised from a curated
(v2.3.0) import of the CVS repository, and will carry future
development of the code and this web page.
git clone git://perlunit.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/perlunit/perlunit[ Browse | Git native | project access instructions | generic SourceForge instructions | SSH fingerprints ]
- The PerlUnit source code, which was addressed in CVS as Test-Unit or src/Test-Unit
- Contains the website http://perlunit.sourceforge.net/, which was addressed in CVS as www.
- Branches and tags representing the corresponding cvs2git imports.
- For posterity.
- Browse the
CVS repository to see the old state of our
files. A quick outline of what was there:
- This is the source for the distributed package.
- Old layouts of the project, everything is in the Attic. Ignore.
- This is project history - what Brian used to start the project.
- Contains the website http://perlunit.sourceforge.net/, no released files or source.
FAQOr more honestly, questions I imagine may be asked.
- Is this project dead?
- The code can never die because it is available under the Artistic / GPL dual licence. SourceForge has shown good long-term reliability for keeping version control repositories intact and available.
- So is the project alive?
- Not very. It has been sleeping for a long time and currently has failing tests in the latest release.
- Does anybody use it?
- As recently as 2011, users have piped up to ask for help. Some of them have large codebases to maintain.
- Is it on Github?
- Yes. You are welcome to fork from mca-wtsi/perlunit but that is not the "official" repository.
