Checks for a shebang directive in
.py files that does not contain
Why is this bad?#
In Python, a shebang (also known as a hashbang) is the first line of a script, which specifies the interpreter that should be used to run the script.
For Python scripts, the shebang must contain
python to indicate that the
script should be executed as a Python script. If the shebang does not
python, then the file will be executed with the default
interpreter, which is likely a mistake.
