       Test2::Formatter::TAP - Standard TAP formatter


       This is what takes events and turns them into TAP.


           use Test2::Formatter::TAP;
           my $tap = Test2::Formatter::TAP->new();

           # Switch to utf8

           $tap->write($event, $number); # Output an event


       $bool = $tap->no_numbers
           Use to turn numbers on and off.

       $arrayref = $tap->handles
           Can be used to get/set the filehandles. Indexes are identified by
           the "OUT_STD" and "OUT_ERR" constants.

       $encoding = $tap->encoding
           Get or set the encoding. By default no encoding is set, the
           original settings of STDOUT and STDERR are used.

           This directly modifies the stored filehandles, it does not create
           new ones.

       $tap->write($e, $num)
           Write an event to the console.

       Test2::Formatter::TAP->register_event($pkg, sub { ... });
           In general custom events are not supported. There are however
           occasions where you might want to write a custom event type that
           results in TAP output. In order to do this you use the
           "register_event()" class method.

               package My::Event;
               use Test2::Formatter::TAP;

               use base 'Test2::Event';
               use Test2::Util::HashBase qw/pass name diag note/;

                   sub {
                       my $self = shift;
                       my ($e, $num) = @_;
                       return (
                           [Test2::Formatter::TAP::OUT_STD, "ok $num - " . $e->name . "\n"],
                           [Test2::Formatter::TAP::OUT_ERR, "# " . $e->name . " " . $e->diag . "\n"],
                           [Test2::Formatter::TAP::OUT_STD, "# " . $e->name . " " . $e->note . "\n"],


       All these methods require the event itself. Optionally they can all
       except a test number.

       All methods return a list of array-refs. Each array-ref will have 2
       items, the first is an integer identifying an output handle, the second
       is a string that should be written to the handle.

       @out = $TAP->event_ok($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_ok($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Ok event.

       @out = $TAP->event_plan($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_plan($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Plan event.

       @out = $TAP->event_note($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_note($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Note event.

       @out = $TAP->event_diag($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_diag($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Diag event.

       @out = $TAP->event_bail($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_bail($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Bail event.

       @out = $TAP->event_exception($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_exception($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Exception event.

       @out = $TAP->event_skip($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_skip($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Skip event.

       @out = $TAP->event_subtest($e)
       @out = $TAP->event_subtest($e, $num)
           Process an Test2::Event::Subtest event.

       @out = $TAP->event_other($e, $num)
           Fallback for unregistered event types. It uses the Test2::Event API
           to convert the event to TAP.
