is lint gone? has it been subsumed into gcc? obviously, it's been a while since i've bothered to use it, now i don't know where to look for it.
The original unix lint is long gone, gone with k&r c.
Gcc -Wall does a much better and more thorough job than unix lint ever did, and doesn't require a separate compilation pass.
There are other lint inspired tools around and some of those do things like malloc/free checking and inter-file flow checking. I don't know of any that are free software that work compile time, though.
