ppdep - The FPC Pascal unit dependency tracking program.
ppdep [-DDefine] [-oFile] [-eext] [-V] [-h] [A[call]] file
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
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.
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.
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.
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
-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.
