Programming Utility For Amiga
Gimpel Software has announced the availability of Amiga-Lint, a diagnostic facility for the C programming language running on the Commodore Amiga. It's similar to the Lint that runs on the Unix operating system.
    Amiga-Lint will analyze C programs and report on bugs, glitches, and inconsistencies. It helps develop reliable programs and port programs over from other machines and operating systems.
    Some of the types of errors reported by Amiga-Lint include parameter-argument mismatches, library usage irregularities, variables declared but not used, and suspicious use of operators and unreachable code. The program's features include full K & R support, fast one-pass operation, no fixed-size tables to overflow, and special Lint-style comments to suppress errors. Amiga-Lint runs under the Amiga's CLI interface.
    Suggested retail price is $98.
