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 dependecies 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.
