Description : Perl module for for testing binary data
Test::Bits provides a single subroutine, bits_is(), for testing binary data.
This module is quite similar to Test::BinaryData and Test::HexString in
concept. The difference is that this module shows failure diagnostics in a
different way, and has a slightly different calling style. Depending on the
nature of the data you're working with, this module may be easier to work
In particular, when you're doing a lot of bit twiddling, this module's
diagnostic output may make it easier to diagnose failures. A typical failure
diagnostic will look like this:
The two pieces of binary data are not the same length (got 2, expected 3).
Binary data begins differing at byte 1.
The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
It is part of the dependency chain for GeoIP2.
