App::Prove::State(3)   Perl Programmers	Reference Guide	  App::Prove::State(3)

       App::Prove::State - State storage for the "prove" command.

       Version 3.43

       The "prove" command supports a "--state"	option that instructs it to
       store persistent	state across runs. This	module implements that state
       and the operations that may be performed	on it.

	   # Re-run failed tests
	   $ prove --state=failed,save -rbv

   Class Methods

       Accepts a hashref with the following key/value pairs:

       o   "store"

	   The filename	of the data store holding the data that
	   App::Prove::State reads.

       o   "extensions"	(optional)

	   The test name extensions.  Defaults to ".t".

       o   "result_class" (optional)

	   The name of the "result_class".  Defaults to

       Getter/setter for the name of the class used for	tracking test results.
       This class should either	subclass from "App::Prove::State::Result" or
       provide an identical interface.

       Get or set the list of extensions that files must have in order to be
       considered tests. Defaults to ['.t'].

       Get the results of the last test	run.  Returns a	"result_class()"

       Save the	test results. Should be	called after all tests have run.
