./pants lint [args]
Lint source code.
Rather than linting all files in a single batch, lint each file as a separate process. Why do this? You'll get many more cache hits. Why not do this? Linters both have substantial startup overhead and are cheap to add one additional file to the run. On a cold cache, it is much faster to use `--no-per-file-caching`. We only recommend using `--per-file-caching` if you are using a remote cache or if you have benchmarked that this option will be faster than `--no-per-file-caching` for your use case.
Specifying a directory causes linters that support writing report files to write into this directory.
Deprecated, will be removed in version: 2.1.0.dev0.
Use the renamed `--per-file-caching` option instead. If this option is set, Pants will now run per every file, rather than per target.
