mkdep - generate dependency list from a C program
mkdep [-a] [-f depend_file] [-p] [cc_options] file...
command generates a dependency list file
from a C source program.
to append its output to the
end of the dependency file instead of creating a new dependency file. If
the dependency file does not exist,
Specifies a name for the dependency file; overrides the default
from appending the suffix
to the names of object files listed in the output.
The mkdep command uses cc(1) to compile a list of dependency files required to build the named C program file or files. The list is formatted so that it is suitable for inclusion into a makefile for make(1). Duplicate dependency listings for a given program are included only once in the output.
You can specify C compiler options by including them in the command line; mkdep passes all unrecognized options through to the compiler.
writes to a file named
.depend; use the
option to specify an alternative
output file name.
The following example illustrates the use of mkdep with the -p option:
% cat hello.c #include <stdio.h>
printf("%s0","Hello World!"); } % mkdep -p -f hello.depend hello.c % cat hello.depend hello: hello.c /usr/include/stdio.h /usr/include/standards.h hello: /usr/include/sys/types.h /usr/include/standards.h hello: /usr/include/mach/machine/vm_types.h /usr/include/sys/limits.h hello: /usr/include/standards.h /usr/include/machine/machlimits.h hello: /usr/include/sys/syslimits.h /usr/include/float.h hello: /usr/include/standards.h /usr/include/fp_class.h hello: /usr/include/machine/machtime.h
