[ANN] pylint 0.6.4

Discussion in 'Python' started by Sylvain =?iso-8859-1?Q?Th=E9nault?=, Apr 14, 2005.

  1. Hello all,

    I'm pleased to announce a new release of PyLint. This release mainly
    fixes multivalued options bug and a systematic crash with python 2.2.
    Users should also use the latest logilab's common library (0.9.3).


    What's new ?
    ------------
    * allow to parse files without extension when a path is given on the
    command line (test noext)

    * don't fail if we are unable to read an inline option (e.g. inside a
    module), just produce an information message (test func_i0010)

    * new message E0103 for break or continue outside loop (close #8883,
    test func_continue_not_in_loop)

    * fix bug in the variables checker, causing non detection of some
    actual name error (close #8884, test
    func_nameerror_on_string_substitution)

    * fix bug in the classes checker which was making pylint crash if
    "object" is assigned in a class inheriting from it (test
    func_noerror_object_as_class_attribute)

    * fix problem with the similar checker when related options are
    defined in a configuration file

    * new --generate-man option to generate pylint's man page (require the
    latest logilab.common (>= 0.9.3)

    * packaged (generated...) man page


    What is pylint ?
    ----------------

    Pylint is a python tool that checks if a module satisfy a coding
    standard. Pylint can be seen as another pychecker since nearly all
    tests you can do with pychecker can also be done with Pylint. But
    Pylint offers some more features, like checking line-code's length,
    checking if variable names are well-formed according to your coding
    standard, or checking if declared interfaces are truly implemented,
    and much more (see http://www.logilab.org/pylint/ for the complete
    check list). The big advantage with Pylint is that it is highly
    configurable, customizable, and you can easily write a small plugin to
    add a personal feature.

    The usage it quite simple :

    $ pylint mypackage.mymodule


    This command will output all the errors and warnings related to the
    tested code (here : mypackage.mymodule), will dump a little summary at
    the end, and will give a mark to the tested code.

    Pylint is free software distributed under the GNU Public Licence.
