       Test::Unit::Result - unit testing framework helper class

       This class is not intended to be	used directly

       This class is used by the framework to record the results of tests,
       which will throw	an instance of a subclass of Test::Unit::Exception in
       case of errors or failures.

       To achieve this,	this class gets	called with a test case	as argument.
       It will call this test case's run method	back and catch any exceptions

       It could	be argued that Test::Unit::Result is the heart of the PerlUnit
       framework, since	TestCase classes vary, and you can use one of several
       Test::Unit::TestRunners,	but we always gather the results in a
       Test::Unit::Result object.

       This is the quintessential call tree of the communication needed	to
       record the results of a given test:

	   $aTestCase->run() {
	       # creates result
	       $aTestResult->run($aTestCase) {
		   # catches exception and records it
		   $aTestCase->run_bare() {
		       # runs test method inside eval
		       $aTestCase->run_test() {
			   # calls method $aTestCase->name()
			   # and propagates exception
			   # method will call Assert::assert()
			   # to	cause failure if test fails on
			   # test assertion
			   # it	finds this because $aTestCase is-a Assert

       Note too	that, in the presence of Test::Unit::TestSuites, this call
       tree can	get a little more convoluted, but if you bear the above	in
       mind it should be apparent what's going on.
