NOTE!!! This script is deprecated and was superseded by the Test-Count CPAN module:


Please look into Test-Count which, despite being written in Perl, also supports some other programming languages and is more generic.


This script helps keeping track of the number of tests in a Perl test
file (t/*.t) by counting '# TEST' comments.

In order to keep track of the number of tests you need to have a statement

    use Test::More tests => 20

at the beginning of the test file. Then you need to make sure, every test
has a corresponding '# TEST' comment. If you run several tests in a loop,
you can append asterisks plus number to the comment. So for example the

    # TEST*3*5

will add 15 tests to the test number.
