 Description: CGI regression test framework
- (no description was found)
+ The CGI::Test framework is an answer to the CGI testing problem.
- This description was automagically extracted from the module by dh-make-perl.
+ It is very difficult to perform testing of complex CGI scripts, which
+ handle multiple states and screens, and where a session involves
+ multiple interactions with the form.  The offline testing mode of the
+ CGI perl module reaches its limit there.
+ .
+ Hence CGI::Test, which acts as a "server" for CGI scripts and can run
+ them offline, outside of any real web server.  The framework offers
+ the infrastructure to analyze the data generated by CGI scripts, extract
+ the various widget information, and gives programmatic control on them.
+ .
+ The framework can be used to easily "test" that the various expected
+ widget controls are there, without necessarily interacting with the
+ widgets.  You also have access to the raw HTML tree if you wish to
+ further inspect the generation.
