Do you know what this is?
debian:~/mysql-cacti-templates/t# php mysql.php not ok 1 - basic test to check that the test suite works # Failed test (/root/mysql-cacti-templates/t/mysql.php at line 9) # got: Array ( [b] => 2 ) # Looks like you failed 1 tests of 1. `
It is the beginning of a test suite, which is long overdue. Writing a test suite for this code would have saved a lot of work ages ago. But as I always say, if you don’t do it from the beginning, it’s much harder to do later. And this code began its life as a script someone else wrote, so I wasn’t there at the beginning. Better late than never.
