  Description     : Perl module to test external commands
 A test module intended to simplify testing of external commands.
 It does so by running the command under IPC::Open3, closing the stdin
 immediately, and reading everything from the command's stdout and stderr.
 It then makes the output available to be tested.
 It is not (yet?) as feature-rich as Test::Cmd, however the
 interface to this is much simpler.  Tests also plug directly into the
 Test::Builder framework, which plays nice with Test::More.

Test::Command::Simple is needed for building (during "make test") the validns
package, that one is being worked on at e.g.
https://launchpad.net/~jelu/+archive/validns .

libtest-command-simple-perl will be maintained by myself and Casper Gielen (
capslock2000-guest @ alioth ).
