Description

This script is a lightweight method to assemble the required arguments for using the Flickr::API. It can be used to assemble the configuration(s) needed for the make test portion of installation. It does not use Flickr::API; and sticks to modules from perl core so that it can be used prior to-- and perhaps in conjunction with-- installation and testing of the Flickr::API module.

When you make test, add the environment variable MAKETEST_OAUTH_CFG, MAKETEST_FLICKR_CFG or both; each pointing to the configuration file you specified. The command should look something like:

  make test MAKETEST_OAUTH_CFG=/home/myusername/test-flickr-oauth.cfg

or

  make test MAKETEST_FLICKR_CFG=/home/myusername/test-flickrs-auth.cfg

or

  make test MAKETEST_FLICKR_CFG=/home/myusername/test-flickrs-auth.cfg \
          MAKETEST_OAUTH_CFG=/home/myusername/test-flickr-oauth.cfg
