Since our last report, Taiki has made even more progress on Perl::Lint, a static analyser for Perl 5. Taiki has now released a usable version of this code to CPAN that improves on the development version mentioned in our previous report.
So, now would be a great time to install Perl::Lint using your favourite CPAN client, run your code through Perl::Lint and let us know what you think. If you already use Perl::Critic to check your code, how do the two compare?
Although Perl::Lint is ready for production use, Taiki still has a few remaining tasks before work on this grant completes:
As before, you can track development in the project's public Github repository.
