my $name = 'Inigo Montoya'; my $quote = 'Prepare to die'; ok($name eq $quote, 'name is quote');
The ok function is given an expression to evaluate. ok() prints out 'ok' or 'not ok' along with the number of the test.
Here's another example that tests if you can use CGI.pm:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w use Test::Simple tests => 2; use CGI; # Test this my $cgi = CGI->new(); # Test #1—this will be ok ok(defined($cgi) and ref $cgi eq 'CGI', 'I have your CGI right here!'); my $header = $cgi->header(-type => `text/plain'); # Test #2—this will not be ok ok($header eq "Content-Type: text/mex");
