Write tests, not scripts that run them

Writing table-driven tests is usually a good idea. Adding a test case doesn’t require adding code, so it’s easy to avoid fucking up the other tests. However, actually going from a table of tests to a test that runs is non-trivial.

TestTableDriven makes writing the test drivers trivial. You simply define your test cases and write a function that turns the input data into output data to compare against. TestTableDriven will compute how many tests need to be run, and then run the tests.

Concentrate on your data and what you’re testing, not plan tests = scalar keys test_cases> and a big foreach loop.
