Is there a copy of lint available via anonymous FTP? I'm looking for checks
to perform in a C/C++ compiler; lint seems like a good start.

What other warnings do C compilers generally issue for dodgy expressions? I
know of the following sort of things:

if (x = 1) // probably should be ==
if (x==1 & y==1) // probably should be &&, not & (same for |/||)
if (x<<y + 2) // is x << (y+2), not (x<<y) + 2

Any suggestions via email or details of FTP'able documents/sources would be
very much appreciated.
