Visual Studio for C++ provide a separate buffer for each of the tools that are configured. Thus when Lint is configured as a tool and is run there is a show output from lint in the output window.

It would be nice if SlickEdit provided a similar capability. You may not need to provide a window or buffer for each tool but you could possible provide a buffer selector and optional buffer name in the tool setup dialog. That would allow 3 different lint tool setups to select a single buffer to feed into.

The result is being able to see the compile or build errors of the project and the lint errors in different buffers that can be selected.
