The lint program checker has proven time and again to be one of the best tools for finding portability problems and certain types of coding errors in C programs. This book introduces you to lint, guides you through running it on your programs, and helps you to interpret lint's output.

lint verifies a program or program segments against standard libraries, checks the code for common portability errors, and tests the programming against some tried and true guidelines. linting your code is a necessary (though not sufficient) step in writing clean, portable, effective programs.

Contents include:

  • Overview of using lint
  • Dealing with lint' concerns: casting and delinting
  • lint comments
  • Using lint in detail: command line options, using lint with make, rolling your own lint library
  • Public domain programs
  • Under the hood: an inside look
  • Future directions
