I've just started using this product again after 
a few years. And I see that it's been upgraded 
from the 7.5 version I have to 8.0. So I looked 
at the prices and fell out of my chair!

I want to use my linux system but there's no way. 
More and more developers are switching to linux 
where most everything is free. This is where the 
market is heading. It should be cheaper than on 
M$. Yet you've priced youself out of 
consideration for us at home users. I seriously 
think you should reconsider your distribution 
process so you can capture the masses on their 
private linux installations yet still be able to 
get the money that's needed for supporting your 
product in large company environments.

Bottom line, changing your licensing structure 
will get you much more money. It's outdated and 
keeping the multitudes of potential users away!

I do agree with your analysis of PC-lint vs.
FlexeLint pricing. UNIX is no longer purely a
corporate solution.

Until Gimpel software fixes this, do be aware that
PC-lint runs just fine on Linux as a regular
console application and works just fine on G++ code.

LINT-NT.EXE only imports 57 symbols from
KERNEL32.DLL, all of which are flawlessly
implemented in Wine. There is no performance
difference when running it this way.

Simply install Wine (http://www.winehq.com/), then
just type:

$wine lint-nt.exe [parameters]

Or, if you add the appropriate line to
"/proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register," you can just
type:

$lint-nt.exe [parameters]

For more details on running Win32 console apps
under Linux with Wine, see:

http://www.winehq.com/site/docs/wine-user/cui-programs

See /usr/src/linux/Documentation/binfmt_misc.txt
for more info about binfmt_misc.

I'd guess so. I've not run Linux in a while. I can
vouch that anonymous was right - I periodically
ran PC-Lint 8 under Linux via wine.

Lint 9h still only depends on kernel32.dll, so I'd
suspect it does work.

I've just tried pc-lint 9h under wine (as supplied
in Knoppix 6.7). lint-nt.exe seems to work fine.

It throws error 302 "Exceeded available memory"
even under the latest wine-1.3.31 after finishing
a list of 1200 C files before showing any wrap-up
messages.

Just for the record: I use Pc-Lint 9.x for years
under wine. Works out-of-the-box.

You could try to reproduce your crash with a lot
of files without wine.

If it still crashes, report it to PC-Lint's
support. (I have a similar ticket running
regarding a crash with a lot of code).

Setting the "large address aware" flag in the
lint-nt.exe executable appears to have fixed the
issue.  

~/tools/PC-lint$ /c/WINDOWS/system32/cmd.exe /v:on
/c 'set PATH=%PATH%;z:\tools\msvc10\Common7\IDE&
z:\tools\msvc10\VC\bin\editbin.exe
/largeaddressaware z:\tools\PC-lint\lint-nt.exe'

I suspect that our runs of lint-nt in Windows
crashed silently without Error 302 'Exceeded
available memory'.  Runs of lint-nt in both
Wine/GNU/Linux and Windows against our set of
1200+ C files showed Error 322 'Unable to open
(header file)'.

I found the idea in the July 31, 2011 post by
Kairhos in wine-users where he or she suggested a
fix to a similar issue.

(It turned important to omit any spaces between
the set PATH command and the subsequent
concatenation character in the above one-liner).

Hi, 
I am new to linting and Since my company has 
license for PC Lint, I thought I will use it. 
Unfortunately I have to work on Ubuntu and hence I 
tried running it in wine. I used the folleing 
commands:
wine ~/Lint/Lint_Core/lint-nt.exe pclint_test1.c 
Error: Error 322: Unable to open include file 
'stdio.h'
Then:
wine ~/Lint/Lint_Core/lint-nt.exe 
~/Lint/Lint_Core/lnt/co-gcc.lnt include.lnt 
pclint_test1.c 
where include.lnt contains all the header address.
Error:
1  Error 305: Unable to open module 
'\usr\lib\gcc\i686-linux-gnu\4.6\include

Kindly help

Just use splint. It works well and the manual is
very good. Don't waste your time with wine. It's a
good program, but if someone wants to sell their
software they make it work natively or sell to
someone else.
