Test2::Plugin::SRand(3User Contributed Perl DocumentatiTest2::Plugin::SRand(3)

NAME
       Test2::Plugin::SRand - Control the random seed for more controlled test
       environments.

DESCRIPTION
       This module gives you control over the random seed used for your	unit
       tests. In some testing environments the random seed can play a major
       role in results.

       The default configuration for this module will seed srand with the
       local date.  Using the date as the seed means that on any given day the
       random seed will	always be the same, this means behavior	will not
       change from run to run on a given day. However the seed is different on
       different days allowing you to be sure the code still works with	actual
       randomness.

       The seed	is printed for you on failure, or when the harness is verbose.
       You can use the "T2_RAND_SEED" environment variable to specify the
       seed. You can also provide a specific seed as a load-time argument to
       the plugin.

SYNOPSIS
       Loading the plugin is easy, and the defaults are	sane:

	   use Test2::Plugin::SRand;

       Custom seed:

	   use Test2::Plugin::SRand seed => 42;

NOTE ON	LOAD ORDER
       If you use this plugin you probably want	to use it as the first,	or
       near-first plugin. "srand" is not called	until the plugin is loaded, so
       other plugins loaded first may already be making	use of random numbers
       before your seed	takes effect.
