|Description:||Check Python programs for error - Modules (0.8.18-3)|
PyChecker is a tool for finding bugs in python source code. It finds problems that are typically caught by a compiler for less dynamic languages, like C and C++. It is similar to lint. Because of the dynamic nature of python, some warnings may be incorrect; however, spurious warnings should be fairly infrequent. PyChecker works in a combination of ways. First, it imports each module. If there is an import error, the module cannot be processed. The import provides some basic information about the module. The code for each function, class, and method is checked for possible problems.
The pychecker-pyXX package installs a /sw/bin/pychecker-pyXX binary, where XX is the version of Python you choose. If you would like a /sw/bin/pychecker binary, then install the pychecker-pyXX-bin package, which creates a symbolic link to /sw/bin/pychecker-pyXX.
