A Unix C language processor which carries out more
thorough checks on the code than is usual with C compilers.
Lint is named after the bits of fluff it supposedly picks from
programs. Judging by references on Usenet this term has
become a shorthand for desk check at some non-Unix shops,
even in languages other than C. Also used as delint.
