For instance, make a file warn.py containing the line:

from numpy import *


$[charris@fedora scratch]$ pychecker warn

among the warning returned are

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/lib/type_check.py:30: Local variable
(typecodes) shadows global defined on line 0 in file <unknown>
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/lib/utils.py:287: (object) shadows

34 errors suppressed, use -#/--limit to increase the number of errors

Neither is an error, but it is bad style to shadow builtins and unexpected
errors can result. The second warning refers to this bit of code:

def info(object=None,maxwidth=76,output=sys.stdout,toplevel='numpy'):
    """Get help information for a function, class, or module.

          >>> from numpy import *
          >>> info(polyval) # doctest: +SKIP

          polyval(p, x)

            Evaluate the polymnomial p at x.

                If p is of length N, this function returns the value:
                p[0]*(x**N-1) + p[1]*(x**N-2) + ... + p[N-2]*x + p[N-1]
    global _namedict, _dictlist
    import pydoc

    if hasattr(object,'_ppimport_importer') or \
       hasattr(object, '_ppimport_module'):
        object = object._ppimport_module
    elif hasattr(object, '_ppimport_attr'):
        object = object._ppimport_attr
