[Melbourne-pm] Do you run advanced lint scripts over your perl as part of a code review/release management process? (Was: Re: ISO 9126 and automated testing)

I'd be interested to hear what people are doing in the 'automated code 
review' space, i.e. where scripts and programs can identify bad logic or 
poor use of syntax that is likely to lead to errors (simplest example is 
the use of '=' for floating point numbers -- see Sakai URLs below for 
more examples).

I could imagine people incorporating some simple assertions into their 
pre-commit cvs/svn scripts, and more complex ones as part of a 
regression test suite, or even as a base case in all test harnesses. 
Presumably a final check should form part of a release management process.

Your experience / comments invited :-)
