Since "our last report":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2014/09/more-perllint-progress-2.html, 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":https://metacpan.org/release/Perl-Lint 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:
* "Implement remaining policies":https://github.com/moznion/Perl-Lint/issues/69
* "Stop using Regexp::Parser":https://github.com/moznion/Perl-Lint/issues/56
* "Support a _## no lint_ option":https://github.com/moznion/Perl-Lint/issues/2
As before, you can track development in the "project's public Github repository":https://github.com/moznion/Perl-Lint.
