    Regarding 'lint'...


    What are some other lint or lint-like programs for debugging c programs? I only know of 'LCLint'.

    And are lint programs only for C or they can be for other programming languages?

    Lint comes for just about any language that someone bothered to write it for. For C there are a number of them ranging from free to exorbitant, such as PC-Lint and FlexeLint. From what I've seen, LCLint is one of the more painful ones, especially on the +strict setting, which is exactly what you are looking for in Lint. There are times where it's wrong, but that's the price you pay for free. The biggest problem I have with it is that it doesn't check C++ code, at least not the version that I have.

    My best code is written with the delete key.
