suspicious-source — search for files that are not the GPL's "preferred form of modification"


suspicious-source [options]


suspicious-source is a script that outputs a list of files which are not common source files. This should be run in the root of a source tree to find files which might not be the "preferred form of modification" that the GPL and other licenses require.

The files inside version control system directories (like .bzr/ or CVS/) are not considered.
