Does it still require a fair amount of putting special comment tags for
it to provide any kind of accuracy? Last time I looked at it, it did.
There's nothing wrong with that, of course -- PC-Lint requires a fair
amount of training before one really starts to get value out of it.
Logic errors are a worthwhile thing to look for in my opinion, also.
