I read that hacking has some checks. It's quite easy to run 2to3 to see modified lines.

Personally, I prefer to just run tests and fix issues one by one. It's faster to fix failing tests without having the modify the whole project at one.

Sometimes, I'm also using regular expressions (in vim or grep). For example, I used "[0-9]+L" to find 123L. You can also use regex to modify code inplace.

2to3 tool drops Python 2 compatibility, so it's not great. But it helps to find code that needs to be modified.

I now prefer 2to6 which uses six and so keeps Python 2 compatibility. I modified it a little bit to reduce changes:
