New words today:

Lint (not just for the dryer any more!)
Lint was the name of a program that would go through your C code and identify problems before you compiled, linked, and ran it. It was a static checker, much like FindBugs today for Java. Like Google, "lint" became a verb that meant static checking your source code.
