Subclassing assertions.rb

I need to subclass Test::Unit::Assertions so I can log the assertions as
they are being, uhh… “asserted”. The following is giving me a “parse
error, unexpected ‘<’” on the line indicated below.

require ‘test/unit/assertions’

module Test
module Unit
module MhiqAssertions < Assertions # <-- PARSE ERROR!

  #overloaded Test::Unit::Assertions.assert()
  def assert(boolean, message=nil)

    #wrap the assertion
    _wrap_assertion do

      assert_block("assert should not be called with a block.") { 

!block_given? }
assert_block(build_message(message, “<?> is not true.”,
boolean)) { boolean }

      #-- log the assertion here

    end  ## do

  end ## method assert()

end ## module MhiqAssertions

end ## module Unit

end ## module Test

You can only subclass a class.

You really want to do one of:

Add methods to Test::Unit::Assertions

Make a custom Test::Unit::TestCase subclass with your new assertions

Write your own set of assertions and include it into
Test::Unit::TestCase

I recommend the first or second.
