1This is the perl test library. To run all the tests, just type 'TEST'.
3To add new tests, just look at the current tests and do likewise.
5If a test fails, run it by itself to see if it prints any informative
6diagnostics. If not, modify the test to print informative diagnostics.
7If you put out extra lines with a '#' character on the front, you don't
8have to worry about removing the extra print statements later since TEST
9ignores lines beginning with '#'.

bbad3607 13 ./perl -I../lib harness
