== DESCRIPTION:

pending lets you define a block of test code that is currently "pending" functionality,
similar to RSpec's pending method.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* A pending method to let you define pending test code

== SYNOPSIS:

The pending method lets you define a block of test code that is currently "pending"
functionality.

You can use it two ways. One is simply put a string as the parameter:

def test_web_service_integration
pending "This is not done yet..."
end

This will output a "P" in the test output alerting there is pending functionality.

You can also supply a block of code:

def test_new_helpers
pending "New helpers for database display" do
output = render_record(User.first)
assert_equal "Jerry User (jerry@users.com)", output
end
end

If the block doesn't fail, then the test will flunk with output like:

<New helpers for database display> did not fail.

If the test fails (i.e., the functionality isn't implemented), then it will
not fail the surrounding test.

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Test::Unit

== INSTALL:

sudo gem install pending
