[Israel.pm] problem with a test

As far as I know the tests are supposed to work as any other
script/programs so if the program works the test is supposed to work too.
In this case the program worked but the test failed when I used the next

if ( @user_input and -e $user_input[0] ) {
   while ( my $input = <> ) {

The while loop worked well if I used to feed it with a file in @ARGV, but
if I try to do it with a test like this

my $file = /path/to/file

  [ $module->input( $file ) ],
  [ "2012", "http://mail.perl.org.il/pipermail/perl/", "10" ],
  'Input method works with file input',

it doesn't work with the code like shown above if I write in the terminal
./input.t BUT if I write ./input.t something (any character at all) it pass
the test.

Why? What makes the difference? As far as I understand it there is no
difference in the code on the program and on the test (if you want me to
copy all the code till that point I can do it)

One more thing, I want to check for the possibility that the user will
enter just one or two parameters in the input, but the object doesn't
forget the parameters I got in, does that mean I have to make more objects
( or rewrite the data) or there is a better way?
