10SYNOPSIS
11--------
12[cmdsynopsis]
13*port* [*-vdq*] [*-D* 'portdir'] *lint*

17DESCRIPTION
18-----------
19*port lint* checks the 'Portfile' of a given port for potential errors. It is
20a useful tool for port maintainers to check for possible typos, mistakes and
21missing definitions.
22
23For example, it verifies that
24
25 * Portfiles are valid UTF-8
26 * all mandatory properties are present
27 * all dependencies actually exist, and
28 * no deprecated features are used.
29
30If problems are found, *port lint* emits warnings and error messages explaining
31the problem. Please fix all errors and consider fixing any warnings before
32submitting your 'Portfile' or your changes to MacPorts.
