Test::Valgrind::Action - Base class for Test::Valgrind actions.


Version 1.19


This class is the base for Test::Valgrind actions.

Actions are called each time a tool encounter an error and decide what to do with it (for example passing or failing tests).



    my $tva = Test::Valgrind::Action->new(action => $action);

Creates a new action object of type $action by requiring and redispatching the method call to the module named $action if it contains '::' or to "Test::Valgrind::Action::$action" otherwise. The class represented by $action must inherit this class.


Indicates if the action wants "valgrind" to run in suppression-generating mode or in analysis mode.



Called when the $session starts.

Defaults to set "started" in Test::Valgrind::Component.


    $tva->report($session, $report);

Invoked each time the "valgrind" process attached to the $session spots an error. $report is a Test::Valgrind::Report object describing the error.

Defaults to check "started" in Test::Valgrind::Component.


    $tva->abort($session, $msg);

Triggered when the $session has to interrupt the action.

Defaults to croak.



Called when the $session finishes.

Defaults to clear "started" in Test::Valgrind::Component.



Returns the status code corresponding to the last run of the action.
