Greg Beaver's Blog:
Code Coverage Reporting using PEAR, PEAR2, phar, and sqlite3
April 14, 2009 @ 12:08:08

Greg Beaver has a new post reporting on his latest efforts to improve the Pyrus PEAR installer and to make it a more strong, stable and robust end result.

One of the problems I found when designing the new code for PEAR 1.4.0 (back in the day) was that it was very difficult to determine whether changes would break things. The main problem revolves around the colossal size of the test suite. [...] This is a real problem when trying to develop with any kind of flow. If, after every change, one needs to sit through 35 minutes of tests, one will never develop anything of substance.

What he wanted was an application that could detect only the files modified and tests those with the results put into the code coverage report. To fill the need, he created test-modified.php to run just the phpt tests needed.
