+#+TITLE: relint.el
+Relint (regular expression lint) scans elisp files for mistakes in
+regexps, including deprecated syntax and bad practice. It also checks
+the regexp-like arguments to ~skip-chars-forward~ and
+* Usage
+Check a single file:
+: M-x relint-file
+Check all .el files in a directory tree:
+: M-x relint-directory
+From batch mode:
+: emacs -batch -l relint.el -f relint-batch FILES-AND-DIRS...
+where directories are scanned recursively.
+* Installation
+Download the source file =relint.el= and set ~load-path~:
+: (add-to-list 'load-path "RELINT-DIRECTORY")
+Relint requires the package [[https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/xr.html][xr]]; 
install it from GNU ELPA.
+* Bugs
+The recognition of regexps is done by ad-hoc rules; the simplistic
+method employed means that many errors will go undetected.
+Still, if you believe that a flawed regexp could have been discovered
+but wasn't, please report it as a bug. Reports of false positives and
+crashes are of course equally welcome.
