Load:

(asdf:load-system :lisp-critic)
Example call:
 (critique
    (defun count-a (lst)
      (setq n 0)
      (dolist (x lst)
        (if (equal x 'a)
          (setq n (+ n 1))))
      n))

Example output:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

SETS-GLOBALS: GLOBALS!! Don't use global variables, i.e., N N
----------------------------------------------------------------------

DOLIST-SETF: Don't use SETQ inside DOLIST to accumulate values for N.
Use DO. Make N a DO variable and don't use SETQ etc at all.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

USE-EQL: Unless something special is going on, use EQL, not EQUAL.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

X-PLUS-1: Don't use (+ N 1), use (1+ N) for its value or (INCF N) to
change N, whichever is appropriate here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
