On Research and Berkeley UNIX versions, ­h enables the checking; on USG systems it disables the checking.  Instead, more specialized libraries may be included. 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.

Here is a vastly over­simplified overview of the three main flavors of the system: Research, Berkeley, and USG.  The current research version is Version Nine.  All System V releases are standardized by the System V Interface Definition [SVID2]. 3BSD. Here is a simplified diagram of the historical relationships among the variants. Page 54 Page 55 C Supplemental Programs This section contains the man page for each of the programs mentioned in Chapter 5.

Do they help or hinder use of postprocessors such as error?  If you have access to both kinds of systems, take the output from a USG lint along with the source program to a Berkeley­derived system and run it through your script and then error(1); if you lack access to both, convince yourself logically that your output is in the right form.  If you do not have the incremental lint option (­c on SVR2), see if you can add it to a copy of your system's lint shell script.  Having done so, you can tell lint about the library just as you tell the compiler about a local library.
