Tag Archives: code review


I’m considering sneaking syntax checking into the scientific code review process I’ve been running this quarter. Here are some resources:

PyLint: http://www.pylint.org/
RLint: https://code.google.com/p/google-rlint/ or http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/lint/index.html
Stata Lint: http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2009-08/msg01048.html http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?syntax http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?language
