NAME

       ppdep - The FPC Pascal unit mover.

SYNOPSIS

       ppumove [-sqbhw] [-o File] [-d path] [-e extension] files...

Description

       ppumove  collects  one  or  several Free Pascal unit files and archives
       them in a static or shared library.

Usage

       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.

Options

       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.

       -d path
              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
              units.

       -h     Shows a short help screen.

       -o file
              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.
