Test2::EventFacet::Plan - Facet for setting the plan


Events use this facet when they need to set the plan.


$string = $plan->{details}
$string = $plan->details()

Human readable explanation for the plan being set. This is normally not rendered by most formatters except when the skip field is also set.

$positive_int = $plan->{count}
$positive_int = $plan->count()

Set the number of expected assertions. This should usually be set to 0 when skip or none are also set.

$bool = $plan->{skip}
$bool = $plan->skip()

When true the entire test should be skipped. This is usually paired with an explanation in the details field, and a control facet that has terminate set to 0.

$bool = $plan->{none}
$bool = $plan->none()

This is mainly used by legacy Test::Builder tests which set the plan to no plan, a construct that predates the much better done_testing().

If you are using this in non-legacy code you may need to reconsider the course of your life, maybe a hermitage would suite you?
