Additionally, a perl interpreter should also be installed - tested with ActivePerl Community Edition.
*.pl files should be configured to be opened by the interpreter by default (double click on any *.pl file and choose ActivePerl as the default program).
GNU 'diff' executable should also be available (can be done by installing git-for-windows and adding it to PATH).
checkpatch.checkFile checks selected file (if the run mode is manual)
checkpatch.checkCommit select specific commit to be tested
checkpatch.checkpatchArgs let you add arguments such as --ignore BLOCK_COMMENT_STYLE, --max-line-length=120
checkpatch.run controls whether the liniting is automatic or manually triggered using the checkpatch.checkFile command.
