Test::Valgrind::Report(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Test::Valgrind::Report(3pm)


Test::Valgrind::Report - Base class for Test::Valgrind error reports.


Version 1.19


This class provides a generic API for messages (the so-called reports) generated by the parser, filtered by the tool and the command, and handled by the action. The tool has authority for deciding in which subclass of this one reports should be blessed.

Reports are classified by kinds. The "Diag" kind is reserved for diagnostics.


   my $tvr = Test::Valgrind::Report->new(
    kind => $kind,
    id   => $id,
    data => $data,

Your usual constructor.

All options are mandatory :

  • "kind" is the category of the report.
  • "id" is an unique identifier for the report.
  • "data" is the content.


    my $diag_report = Test::Valgrind::Report->new_diag($data);

Constructs a report with kind 'Diag', an auto-incremented identifier and the given $data.


    my $kind = $tvr->kind;

Read-only accessor for the "kind" option.


    my $id = $tvr->id;

Read-only accessor for the "id" option.


    my $data = $tvr->data;

Read-only accessor for the "data" option.



Tells if a report has the 'Diag' kind, i.e. is a diagnostic.


    my @kinds = $tvr->kinds;

Returns the list of valid kinds for this report class.

Defaults to 'Diag'.



Tells whether $kind is a valid kind for this report class.

Defaults to true iff "$kind eq 'Diag'".
