This script does not work with my pylint:

$ pylint --version
pylint 0.24.0,
astng 0.22.0, common 0.56.0
Python 2.7.2 (default, Jun 29 2011, 11:10:00)
[GCC 4.6.1]

Apply the following patch to fix it:

$ diff pylint.vim.orig pylint.vim
< CompilerSet makeprg=(echo\ '[%]';\ pylint\ -r\ y\ %)
> CompilerSet makeprg=(echo\ '[%]';\ pylint\ -r\ y\ --output-format=parseable\ %)
< CompilerSet efm=%+P[%f],%t:\ %#%l:%m,%Z,%+IYour\ code%m,%Z,%-G%.%#
> CompilerSet efm=%f:%l:\ [%t]%m,%f:%l:%m

--anon 10:28, August 25, 2011


The patch is working for pylint 0.25.1 too.

Thanks a lot!
