     amlint -- check Automator actions for problems


     amlint [-HhSs] [-d definition-bundle] [-x exception-file] action ...


     amlint checks the given Automator actions for various problems and inter-
     face inconsistencies.  action is the path of a built action bundle.  The
     options are as follows:

     -H    Print the filename for each error or warning.

     -h    Suppress the prefixing of filenames when multiple actions are

     -S    For each action, write a summary line indicating how many errors
           and warnings there were.

     -s    As -S, but skips the summary line for actions with no errors or

     -d definition-bundle
           Specify a definition bundle, which specifies custom action input
           and output types.  This option may be repeated if you need to spec-
           ify more than one bundle.

     -x exception-file
           Specify a list of errors and warnings to ignore.  The file should
           be plain text, with one line per error: the action filename, a
           colon, space, and the text of the error.  For example:

                 My Action.action: error: NSButton "OK" should not use the metal style.

           You can simply copy an output line from amlint -H.


     amlint exits with one of the following values:

     0     no serious errors were found.

     1     an error was found in one of the checked actions.

     >1    an internal error occurred.


     Because of a bug in nibtool(1), amlint will fail to work on some nibs.
     You will see errors about the ``old-style plist parser'' if this happens.
