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.
