Unittesting settings

I tried use unittest module for my perl project and has faced with an issue - I could not find where I can assign additional folders with libs.
In Komodo global setting and in project options on tab ‘language’->Perl I have added custom folder, as say ‘/home/shura/perl5/lib/perl5’, but unittest module does not use it.
Moreover, I have assigned environment variable $PERL5LIB=/home/shura/perl5/lib/perl5 and it has not helped.
Also Unittest dialog window does not allow change command editbox, it’s readonly.

How to add custom lib directories?

Morning @Alexander_Zaitsev,

This should work I believe. Where did you set this?

This has caught others off guard. You need to select Custom in the Framework field above.

Environment variables are added in my .zshrc and also I’ve tried to add it to Settings -> Environment.

Thanks, I’ll try

Morning @Alexander_Zaitsev,

I assume you then start Komodo from a terminal session? If you’ve set it in .zshrc then start Komodo from a terminal, you should see any env vars set in the terminal session also in Komodos Preferences > Environment. Did you not see PERL5LIB there?

Could you confirm that you can run the code you expect to run, in a terminal? A simple use Something::I::Expect::To::Be::There; should suffice. Run that in a terminal, confirming it runs. Then start Komodo and try to run the Debugger on the same file.

I want to try and narrow things down to what’s going on.

thank you for your help.

It was my fault, as I wrote I added environment variable in project settings


Dollar was not needed there, I removed it and now everything works well.

But just a note. Before I do that, everything except unittesting worked well, I could run my program in terminal, I could run it in debugger. Syntax checking worked well too.

Seems like unittesting (prove) does not get settings from Project Preferences -> Languages -> Perl -> Additional Perl import directories.

Oh this sounds familiar now. Can you share which version of Komodo you’re on? Help > About Komodo

I fixed a bug a month or so ago where some sub process were launching with over written environments (rather than augmented). If you use Komodo 12 nightly you may not need to set PERL5LIB.

Komodo IDE, version 12.0.0, build 91824, platform linux-x86_64.
Built on Tue Jan 14 11:42:53 2020.

Thanks @Alexander_Zaitsev, that fix should have been in there. I guess it’s not that.

Did you happen to update to the nightly I shared? If yes, was there a difference?

Ok, I’ve tried to install nightly
Komodo-IDE-12.0.1-91852-linux-x86_64]$ ./install.sh
Enter directory in which to install Komodo. Leave blank and
press ‘Enter’ to use the default [~/Komodo-IDE-12].
Install directory:

‘~/Komodo-IDE-12’ already exists. Installing over an existing
Komodo installation may have unexpected results. Are you
sure you would like to proceed with the installation?
Proceed? [y/N] y

install: error: [Errno 17] File exists: ‘/home/shura/Komodo-IDE-12/lib’

I do not want setup the IDE again.

We don’t keep preference settings in the Install Directory. That would be a big nono. All your prefs are in ~/.komodoide. You can safely delete Komodo-IDE-12 and install the nightly.

FYI, once 12.0.1 is release you’ll be automatically prompted to update to it, as well any new nightlies we release.

Ok, I’ve installed 12.0.1 and nothing changed. Unittests do not work without additional environment variable PERL5LIB=/home/shura/perl5/lib/perl5
