Test::Simple is an extremely simple module for writing tests suitable for CPAN
modules and other pursuits.
This package also includes the following modules:
* Test::Builder - backend for building test libraries
* Test::Builder::Module - base class for test modules
* Test::Builder::Tester - test testsuites that are built with Test::Builder
* Test::Builder::Tester::Color - turn on colour in Test::Builder::Tester
* Test::More - yet another framework for writing test scripts
This module is already included as part of Perl's core distribution, so this
package is only beneficial when newer features or bug fixes are required.
