    As far as Ubuntu goes, you're absolutely right. The Ubuntu repo doesn't seem to have a copy.

    The thing to do then (he said, confidently) is to add more repositories to your list. Namely, a few Debian repositories. Now, I probably should tell you that this step isn't recommended (and people on the forums actively advise against it). The reason is that it's easy to upgrade something "core" and bork the system.

    splint doesn't fall into this category, however. I added Marillat's archive (http://ubuntuguide.org/#extrarepositories [ubuntuguide.org]) and installed splint. Only splint, mind. Don't pay any attention to the other upgrade notifications :) I haven't programmed C since umm... 1998, but my installed copy of splint seemed to make all the right noises. The marillat repo also has a deb version of Acrobat Reader 7, if you are so inclined.

    • I have a load of debian repositories (9 in all) and none of them had lint or splint. However, now that I've added your suggested repository, I found splint straight away. Thanks :)
