README for PyLint


Pylint requires the logilab-astng (version >= 0.14), logilab-common (version >= 0.13) and the optik (only for python < 2.3) packages. Pylint should be compatible with any python >= 2.2.


From the source distribution, extract the tarball and run

python install

You'll have to install dependancies in a similar way. For debian and rpm packages, use your usual tools according to your Linux distribution.

More information about installation and available distribution format may be found in the user manual in the doc subdirectory.


Look in the doc/ subdirectory.
