       pyflakes - simple Python source checker


       pyflakes [file-or-directory ...]


       Pyflakes is a simple program which checks Python source files for errors.  It is similar
       to PyChecker in scope, but differs in that it does not execute the modules to check them.
       This is both safer and faster, although it does not perform as many checks. Unlike PyLint,
       Pyflakes checks only for logical errors in programs; it does not perform any checks on

       All commandline arguments are checked, which have to be either regular files or
       directories. If a directory is given, every .py file within will be checked.

       When no commandline arguments are given, data will be read from standard input.


       Found warnings including unused imports, undefined variables and unnecessary reimports,
       are printed on standard output.  Found errors including compile or encoding errors, are
       printed on standard error.


       The exit status is 0 when no warnings or errors are found. When errors are found the exit
       status is 2. When warnings (but no errors) are found the exit status is 1.
