My company is using python embedded into an application.

Is it possible to use pylint in unit tests, like the following:

from pylint import epylint as lint
lint.py_run('../lib/lib.py --rcfile=../pylint.rc')

I have tried that one, but I get a strange error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

After digging a bit, I think that somehow pylint is trying to use python executable (from PATH), because my host python is 3.10,
while the embedded python is 3.9 and there is no python executable at all.

My question is: is there a pylint API to let it check sources with the current python, without doing system/exec etc., which are not available in my case?
