ppdep - The FPC Pascal unit mover.
ppumove [-sqbhw] [-o File] [-d path] [-e extension] files...
ppumove collects one or several Free Pascal unit files and archives
them in a static or shared library.
You can invoke ppumove with as the only required argument the name of
the unit from which you want to make an archive. Specifying multiple
files is also possible, they will be put in the same archive.
ppumove has several options, which are case sensitive:
-b This option tells ppumove to write a shell script (a batch file
on DOS) that performs the needed calls to ar and ld. The script
will be called pmove, with an extension of .sh on Linux, and
.bat on DOS. You can then call this script manually afterwards.
This option tells ppumove where to generate the new unit files.
By default, this is the same directory as where the files are
found. If you specify as the output extension the same
extension as the units you want to move, not specifying the
destination directory may cause problems.
-e ext This option sets the extension of the new unit files to ext. By
default .ppl is used. However, you can specify .ppu as the
extension. If you do, be sure to use also the -d switch, or you
will overwrite the old units. Note however, that the compiler
will only look for extensions .ppu and .ppl when looking for
-h Shows a short help screen.
This option allows you to specify the name of the library to be
generated. You must use this option if you specify more than
one unit on the command-line. If you specified only one unit on
the command-line, the generated library will have the unit name,
with lib prepended (on Linux). You do not need to specify the
lib part, this will be prepended automatically if needed.
-q Tells ppumove to operate quietly.
-s Tells ppumove to generate a static library. By default, a shared
library is generated (except on DOS).
-w Tells ppumove it should use the windows linker and archiver. Do
not use this option on Linux.
