Perl::Lint Significant Improvements

No Comments

It's a while since our last report on Perl::Lint, but Taiki has made considerable progress since then, releasing 3 new versions of this Perl source code analyser.

Perl::Lint doesn't yet support everything described in Taiki's original proposal for this TPF grant as it needs a few small improvements to match Perl::Critic.

Despite this, Taiki has written a fast alternative to Perl::Critic that's easy to use, well documented and now has an associated test module.

I would like to suggest to The Perl Foundation's Grants Committee that we treat this grant as a success. Please leave a comment on this post if you support or oppose this.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has experimented with Perl::Lint so far, particularly those who have raised reports of problems they encountered, and most of all Taiki for fixing these problems along with the rest of his good work.
