Setup WING IDE for ArcPy 10.1

I've changed python IDE to WING.  It's a very nice IDE, but it took sometime getting use to from pydev's eclipse add on.

Here is the basic setup of WING IDE with PyLint:

1. Download easy_install:
2. Install easy_install
3. Go to the install location of Python 2.7.x and run 'easy_install pylint'
4. Install WING IDE
5. Start WING IDE
6. Select Tools -> PyLint
7. Right click on the PyLint window and select 'configure'
8. Edit the 'command =' to be 'command = C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.1\Scripts\pylint.bat'
9. Run pylint on a .py file

* if you get an error, try adding the full path to the python.exe in the pylint.bat file.
