       "cpants_lint" checks the Kwalitee of a CPAN distribution. More exact, it checks how a
       given tarball will be rated on "", without needing to upload it

       For more information on Kwalitee, and the whole of CPANTS, see ""
       and / or "Module::CPANTS::Analyse".


       Print a brief help message.

       Print manpage.

       Print some informative messages while analysing a distribution.

   --colour, --color
       Like "--verbose", but prettier. You need to install Term::ANSIColor (and
       Win32::Console::ANSI for Win32) to enable this option.

       Dump the result using Data::Dumper (instead of displaying a report text).

       Dump the result as YAML.

       Dump the result as JSON.


       Output the result into a file instead of STDOUT.

       The name of the file will be Foo-Dist.txt (well, the extension depends on the dump format
       and can be ".dmp", ".yml" or ".json")


       Directory to dump a file to. Defaults to the current working directory.


       Search path for extra metrics modules
