Certainly not. In perl, it's the -w switch, in gcc the -W family
(with -Wall the max). And that's as it should be, an option (sort of
a builtin pychecker).
While on the topic of pychecker, I've been a bit disappointed. Not
meaning to demerit the developers, I'm sure it's been a ton of hard
work, but when I've used it I tend to get way too many spurious
warnings and very little substance. Well, maybe I just don't know how
to use it well, I really haven't looked at it in detail.
