How to supress chktex errors in minted environment?

Is there a way to make chktex play nice with the minted package? Right now, it seems to assume that normal checks apply to the content of the minted environments and produces a lot of warnings.

Prepare a file called chktexrc.local in the same directory as the file you have to check, containing

VerbEnvir
{
verbatim comment listing verbatimtab rawhtml errexam picture texdraw
filecontents pgfpicture tikzpicture minted
}


Call

chktex -l chktexrc.local filename.tex


(where filename stands for the name of the file, of course).

I tested it with the file gregoire.tex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{minted}
\begin{document}

\begin{minted}
a{zxx
\end{minted}

\end{document}


and the normal call of chktex gregoire.tex gives

ChkTeX v1.7.4 - Copyright 1995-96 Jens T. Berger Thielemann.
Compiled with POSIX extended regex support.
Warning 15 in  line 6: No match found for {'.

^
Warning 17 in gregoire.tex line 9: Number of {' doesn't match the number of }'!


whereas the call chktex -l chktexrc.local gregoire.tex produces

ChkTeX v1.7.4 - Copyright 1995-96 Jens T. Berger Thielemann.
Compiled with POSIX extended regex support.
No errors printed; No warnings printed; No user suppressed warnings; No line suppressed warnings.


Note: the VerbEnvir list in the default chktexrc file doesn't cover several other “verbatim-like” environments; it has been updated for pgfpicture and tikzpicture, but it misses several other common environments such as those provided by listings and fancyvrb. However, the list cannot be complete, as these packages allow for defining new environments; probably adding

Verbatim BVerbatim lstlistings


would be useful nonetheless.

• If you call it .chktexrc (or chktexrc on Windows), you don't have to use the -l option, it will be picked up automatically. – Ivan Andrus Sep 23 '15 at 4:24
• @IvanAndrus Sure, but I don't like the proliferation of invisible files. – egreg Sep 23 '15 at 7:25
• Should be lstlisting instead of listings. – Raffi Khatchadourian Dec 29 '15 at 2:17
• @RaffiKhatchadourian The code is simply copied from the default chktexrc file with the addition of minted. If one wants to also cover lstlisting, also this name must be added; but the question didn't mention it. I'm displeased by the downvote, but the answer is correct as it stands. – egreg Dec 29 '15 at 10:44
• @RaffiKhatchadourian You can add \mintinline:{}{} to the WipeArg list and \mintinline{python}{print(x**2)} would be ignored. Otherwise it just warns about a parenthesis without a space in front of it. – egreg Jan 1 '16 at 22:08

You can use the default chktexrc found here (store in your directory as .chktexrc or use the global one). I changed the following in this file to accommodate the mint package:

VerbEnvir
{
verbatim comment listing lstlisting verbatimtab rawhtml errexam picture texdraw minted
}

WipeArg
{
\label:{} \ref:{} \vref:{} \pageref:{} \index:{} \cite:[]{}
\input:{} \verbatiminput:[]{} \listinginput:[]{}{}
\verbatimtabinput:[]{} \include:{} \includeonly:{}
\bibitem:[]{} \mintinline:[]{}{}
}
