$bool = $control->{global}
$bool = $control->global()
True if the event is global in nature and should be seen by all hubs.
$exit = $control->{terminate}
$exit = $control->terminate()
Defined if the test should immediately exit, the value is the exit code and may be 0.
$bool = $control->{halt}
$bool = $control->halt()
True if all testing should be halted immediately.
$bool = $control->{has_callback}
$bool = $control->has_callback()
True if the "callback($hub)" method on the event should be called.
$encoding = $control->{encoding}
$encoding = $control->encoding()
This can be used to change the encoding from this event onward.
$phase = $control->{phase}
