NAME

       checkstyle -  static code analysis tool to check if Java source code complies with coding
       rules

SYNOPSIS

       checkstyle -c configurationFile [options] [file]

OVERVIEW

       Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a
       coding standard. It automates the process of checking Java code to spare humans of this
       boring (but important) task. This makes it ideal for projects that want to enforce a
       coding standard.

       Checkstyle is highly configurable and can be made to support almost any coding standard.

       For information about Checkstyle, it can be found at http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/.
