What is meant by JavaScript Lint?

JavaScript Lint is designed to check JavaScript and helps you prevent making coding mistakes in the JavaScript code you write. Many JavaScript implementations do not have warning mechanisms built-in to check the code for errors and that is where JavaScript Lint beocmes very useful. Using JavaScript Lint you need not actually run the code and you need not even open a web page which has JavaScript code.

Where do you get it?

You can download it from this site: You also find documentation there.

JavaScript Lint is based on the Javascript engine for Firefox browser which makes it possible not only to check JavaScript syntax but also warn about quesitonable code.
