We are having a testing hackathon for our opcodes! These tests are t/op/*.t in the Parrot repo.

Here are some guiding principles of the hackathon:

  • If there are tests written in Perl, we would like to convert them to PIR, if possible.
    • Some can't be converted because the required testing functions do not exist in Parrot's Test::More
    • In this case, improve Test::More
  • Add tests for things with the lowest coverage first
  • If you want to add tests to a large, currently Perl 5 test file, svn copy the foo.t to foo-old.t, then start writing PIR tests in foo.t and migrating tests from foo-old.t to foo.t as tests are translated
