Example text

The V7 manual states: This is not the default because, unfortunately, most lex and many yacc outputs produce dozens of such comments. Thus it seems that the Research and Berkeley version of lint has a better default for ­b, at least if you are brave enough to lint the output of yacc.  Such Page 26 casts are in fact "questionable"; they will work on some computers, and (you guessed it) fail on others.  On Research and Berkeley UNIX versions, ­h enables the checking; on USG systems it disables the checking.

0.  If so, this is a mistake on the part of the developers.  But there is no llib­port portability library.  On all systems that I know of, this option suppresses the checking.  Declaring external variables and then not using them is Page 28 mildly wasteful—the compiler has to parse the declarations and then winds up discarding them—so you should run this checking periodically.  If the lint program is written as a shell file (see Chapter 6, Under the Hood), it can easily be extended to support this method.

Thy external identifiers shall be unique in the first six characters, though this harsh discipline be irksome and the years of its necessity stretch before thee seemingly without end, lest thou tear thy hair out and go mad on that fateful day when thou desirest to make thy program run on an old system.  Thou shalt foreswear, renounce, and abjure the vile heresy which claimeth that "All the world's a VAX," and have no commerce with the benighted heathens who cling to this barbarous belief, that the days of thy program may be long even though the days of thy current machine be short.
