Help - I'm getting too many messages.

If you get lots of messages from your compiler headers, perhaps your configuration is not correct.  If you're using a compiler that we support with a co-*.lnt file, make sure you are using it.  If we don't supply a file for your compiler, you may need to write your own.  In general, use our lint options to handle compiler extensions to the language - for instance, nullify additional reserved words with the -d option or enable them with the +rw() option.

If you've never linted your code before, you may want to modify the warning level initially.  Try running with -w1 to report only errors.  After you've fixed the resulting errors (or suppressed those that you don't want reported), run with -w2, and so forth.
