NAME

       ccmakedep - create dependencies in makefiles using a C compiler

SYNOPSIS

       ccmakedep  [ cpp-flags ] [ -wwidth ] [ -smagic-string ] [ -fmakefile ] [ -oobject-suffix ]
       [ -v ] [ -a ] [ -cccompiler ] [ -- options -- ] sourcefile ...

DESCRIPTION

       The ccmakedep program calls a C compiler to  preprocess  each  sourcefile,  and  uses  the
       output  to  construct  makefile rules describing their dependencies.  These rules instruct
       make(1) on which object files must be recompiled when a dependency has changed.

       By default, ccmakedep places its output in the file named makefile if it exists, otherwise
       Makefile.   An  alternate makefile may be specified with the -f option.  It first searches
       the makefile for a line beginning with

           # DO NOT DELETE

       or one provided with the -s option, as a delimiter for the dependency output.  If it finds
       it,  it  will  delete  everything following this up to the end of the makefile and put the
       output after this line.  If it doesn't find it, the program will append the string to  the
       makefile and place the output after that.

EXAMPLE

       Normally,  ccmakedep  will  be used in a makefile target so that typing 'make depend' will
       bring the dependencies up to date for the makefile.  For example,
           SRCS = file1.c file2.c ...
           CFLAGS = -O -DHACK -I../foobar -xyz
           depend:
                   ccmakedep -- $(CFLAGS) -- $(SRCS)

OPTIONS

       The program will ignore any option that it does not understand, so you may  use  the  same
       arguments  that  you  would  for cc(1), including -D and -U options to define and undefine
       symbols and -I to set the include path.

       -a     Append the dependencies to the file instead of replacing existing dependencies.

       -cccompiler
              Use this compiler to generate dependencies.

       -fmakefile
              Filename.  This allows you to specify an alternate makefile in which ccmakedep  can
              place  its output.  Specifying “-” as the file name (that is, -f-) sends the output
              to standard output instead of modifying an existing file.

       -sstring
              Starting string delimiter.  This option permits you to specify a  different  string
              for ccmakedep to look for in the makefile.  The default is “# DO NOT DELETE”.

       -v     Be verbose: display the C compiler command before running it.

       -- options --
              If  ccmakedep  encounters  a  double  hyphen  (--)  in  the argument list, then any
              unrecognized arguments following it will be  silently  ignored.   A  second  double
              hyphen  terminates  this  special treatment.  In this way, ccmakedep can be made to
              safely ignore esoteric compiler arguments that might normally be found in a  CFLAGS
              make  macro  (see  the  EXAMPLE  section  above).  -D, -I, and -U options appearing
              between the pair of double hyphens are still processed normally.
