  • Ruby has nitpick at http://github.com/kevinclark/nitpick/tree/master [github.com]. FWIW, tt's oppressively slow and has the following checks:

    • An assigment is being used as a condition: ...
    • The method ... is empty
    • The branches of 'if (...)' are identical
    • A rescue is capturing Object or Exception, which may hide errors.
    • A rescue is returning ... directly and may not handle an error.
    • One or more variables are being shadowed (...)
    • A block is being yielded to without a check for block_given?
    • The argument ... is unused
    • The variable .. is unused
    • No need for an if. Just return '...' as a boolean

    Like it or not, the stock perlcritic has 136 checks which is over 10x as many things. Nitpick just hasn't had the same love and attention applied.
