It's incorrect in the sense that most of the modules aren't documented. 
I was using that article and the one on, or I would have got 
nowhere. I'll likely submit some docs for TestRequest shortly.

No, I run `make test`. In my test scripts, which live in t/, when I

't/logs/error_log'. It runs out of t/.

I'll take a look.
