Test::Cmd module is a Perl class
for writing portable tests of external commands or scripts.
Its key features include portable interfaces
for file system interaction,
including management and cleanup
of one or more temporary working directories.
This makes it extremely well-suited
for testing programs or systems
that rely on specific file system characteristics
(time stamps, permissions, directory structures),
yet which must operate on multiple operating systems.
Many of the underlying ideas in this module originated in the testing framework invented by Peter Miller for his Aegis project change supervisor. Aegis is an excellent bit of work which integrates incremental creation and execution of regression tests into the software development progress.
Test::Cmd module has
been tested on Linux, BSD, and Windows NT.
Portability fixes for other systems are extremely welcome.
