Perl module that allows swapping the currently compiling file for a new one


goto::file allows Test2::Harness to swap out the main script for the new file without adding a stack frame.

It is rare, but there are times where you want to swap out the currently compiling file for a different one. This module does that. From the point you 'use' the module perl will be parsing the new file instead of the original.

This module was created specifically for Test2::Harness which can preload modules and fork to run each test. The problem was that using 'do' to execute the test files post-fork was resuling in extra frames in the stack trace... in other words there are a lot of tests that assume the test file is the bottom of the stack. This happens all the time, specially if stack traces need to be verified.
