"I learned one or two little tricks, and since I'm fairly expert on
lint that came as a pleasant surprise. The book is short and to the point. On the other hand, it is not very terse, and anyone who's written a C program of more than one source file should be able to read and learn from it." --Message-ID: <89Dec26.225008est.2631@sq.sq.com>

"I can say without reservation that this book is a must for the system programmer or anyone else programming in C." --Root Journal, Sept/Oct 1990

"The book is short, useful, and to the point. I recommend it for self-study to all involved with C in a UNIX environment, as it certainly goes beyond the standard documentation on lint and makes this important tool much more accessible." --Computing Reviews, August 1989

"The book starts with an overview of lint and then shows you how to use it with examples. Then it gets into some realistic explanations of all those warnings, comments and error messages you get from lint. It is the first time I have ever seen explanations that are fully understandable. In fact, one of the most useful and fascinating things I found in this book is the explanation of lint's internal comments and how to use them to get lint to shut up about a few specific errors or warnings that plague every programmer.
