Python correctness (i.e., lint) analyzing for Notepad++

Does anyone know of anything like pylint or pychecker for notepad++? Or perhaps how to use pylint in notepad++.

Answer

If you install the Python Script plugin, then you can add a new script with the following lines to get pretty good results:

console.show()
console.clear()
console.run('cmd.exe /c '
            + 'C:\\Python26\\Scripts\\pylint.bat --reports=n -f parseable '
            + '"%s"' % notepad.getCurrentFilename())

The output will include hyperlinks to the lines with the errors/warnings (if the filenames don't have spaces in them...)
