First of all, I don't really understand what's the difference between
messages and reports. Are messages the stuff printed on the console
when pylint is running and reports the things that ends up in the

Anyway, here's what I want.

I have 3 batch files to lint 3 packages.

pylint-AP.bat => pyliny.py AP
pylint-px.bat => pyliny.py px
pylint-Test.bat => pyliny.py Test

I want each operation to dump it's result in a separate HTML file.
With the patch I've sent you, this works.

The above invocations generate 3 HTML files which I then load in
Firefox and use highlighting to look quickly for interesting warnings
(unused import and redefining builtin).


All the warnings are good, but due to some libraries I use (pywin32)
and some other things, I get many not so useful warnings (tons of
"Access to undefined member" since pylint can't see methods from C
extension objects and "Unused argument"). I can send you a sample
report if you wish.
