Carp::Always to find the source of the problem
In Perl warn and die tell us where a problem was noticed. carp and croak tell us where they were created.
Carp::Always can help bridge the gap.
Recently my CI system of the Perl Maven web site reported the following error:
Can't decode ill-formed UTF-8 octet sequence <FF> at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.30.3/Path/Tiny.pm line 1801. # Tests were run but no plan was declared and done_testing() was not seen. # Looks like your test exited with 25 just after 263. t/00-basic.t .......... Dubious, test returned 25 (wstat 6400, 0x1900) All 263 subtests passed t/01-pages.t .......... ok t/10-test-examples.t .. ok Test Summary Report ------------------- t/00-basic.t (Wstat: 6400 Tests: 263 Failed: 0) Non-zero exit status: 25 Parse errors: No plan found in TAP output Files=3, Tests=1941, 0 wallclock secs ( 0.13 usr 0.02 sys + 0.57 cusr 0.10 csys = 0.82 CPU) Result: FAIL Error: Process completed with exit code 1.
OK, so there is some problem that cause Path::Tiny to die and it happened in the t/00-basic.t file, but which call was it? Where was the function that died called?
I have added the following to t/00-basic.t, my own test script (and to the list of dependencies as well), and pushed out the changes:
The result (slightly shortened to make it clearer):
Can't decode ill-formed UTF-8 octet sequence <FF> at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.30.3/Path/Tiny.pm line 1801. Path::Tiny::slurp(undef, undef) called at t/00-basic.t line 31 # Tests were run but no plan was declared and done_testing() was not seen. t/00-basic.t .......... # Looks like your test exited with 25 just after 263.
OK, so now I know it is on line 31 of the test script. I can now figure out what happened there.
Now I "only" need to fix the bug.
