NAME

       ppdep - The FPC Pascal unit dependency tracking program.

SYNOPSIS

       ppdep [-DDefine] [-oFile] [-eext] [-V] [-h] [A[call]] file

Description

       ppdep  dumps the dependencies of a unit in a format that can be understood by GNU make. It
       writes these dependencies to standard output. It takes care of dependencies  both  in  the
       interface and implementation section of the unit, and it can handle conditional defines.

Usage

       You  can  invoke ppdep with as the only required argument the name of the file (program or
       unit) whose dependencies you wish to list. You don't need  to  specify  an  extension,  by
       default .pp is assumed.

Options

       ppdep has several options, which are case insensitive:

       -acall This  option tells ppdep to generate a compiler call for the makefile. The compiler
              call will be generated for each file that is found in the current directory. If you
              do no specify an explicit compiler call, ppc386 is used.

       -dkeyword
              This  option defines keyword that can be used to verify conditional defines.  ppdep
              understands conditional defines, you should use this switch if the uses  clause  of
              the programs or units can contain conditional defines.

       -eext  This  allows  you to specify a different extension for the unit files.  By default,
              .ppu is assumed. This extension is written to the makefile.

       -f[call]
              This option tells ppdep to generate a compiler call for the makefile. The  compiler
              call  will  be  generated only for the file that was specified on the ppdep command
              line. If you want to generate a compiler call for  each  file  found,  use  the  -a
              option.  If you do no specify an explicit compiler call, ppc386 is used.

       -h     Shows a short help screen.

       -ofile This  option  allows  you  to  specify  a  file to which the dependencies should be
              written. By default the dependencies  are  written  to  standard  output.   If  you
              specify this option, the dependencies are written to file

              instead.

       -v     Writes some diagnostic messages. If you use this option, be sure to use -o as well,
              since the diagnostic messages will also be written to standard output.
