A little trick to force you to run your tests before a commit:
in a repositorie, create the following file .git/hooks/pre-commit with this content:
#!/bin/sh if [ -d t ]; then res=`prove t` if [ $? -gt 0 ]; then echo "tests fails" exit 1 fi fi if [ -d xt ]; then res=`prove xt` if [ $? -gt 0 ]; then echo "tests fails" exit 1 fi fi
and don't forget to chmod with +x.
Now, when you will do your next commit, your test suit will be executed. If the tests fails, the commit will be rejected.
