> Pylint is a lint-like tool for Python code

Does pylint only work for modules?  When I tried to run it on my code file
(ezpicmailer.py) , it raised an exception:

No config file found, using default configuration
Exception: Unable to find module for C:\photoedit\ezpicmailer in

and then it gave a long list of modules in my sys.path.  It seems to insist
that the argument I give it be a module in sys.path, not just an arbitrary
python code file.

Logilab has released pylint-0.2

What's new?

In addition to a large number of bug fixes, this release adds two new
checkers, for missing encoding declaration, and for FIXME comments. Zope
support was improved.

About Pylint

Pylint is a lint-like tool for Python code. It performs almost all the
verifications that pychecker does, and additionally can perform some
stylistic verification and coding standard enforcements. The checked
code is assigned a mark based on the number and the severity of the
encountered problems. The previous mark of a given piece of code is
cached so that you can see if the code quality has improved since the
last check.
