Options

The implementation of JSLint accepts an option object that allows you to determine the subset of JavaScript that is acceptable to you. It is also possible to set those options within the source of a script.

An option specification can look like this:

/*jslint nomen: true, evil: false */

An option specification starts with /*jslint. Notice that there is no space before the j. The specification contains a sequence of name/value pairs, where the names are JSLint options and the values are true or false. An option specification takes precedence over the option object. All of the options default to false. Table C-1 lists the options available in using JSLint.
