PEP-257 provides conventions for Python docstrings (string literals which
occur as first statement in a module, function, class or method definition
for documentation purposes). This tool checks Python code whether
these conventions have been complied with, and if docstring are missing.
This is a successor of the application "pep257".
This package installs the cli tool.
