bgldepend - create Bigloo dependencies in makefiles
SYNOPSISbgldepend [ options ] sourcefile ...
bgldepend program reads each sourcefile in sequence and parses it to find the module include and import module directives. bgldepend computes the transitive closure of the import relationship. That is, it is sufficient to provide bgldepend with a single Bigloo file that imports all the project file (e.g. the "main" file.)
Every file that a sourcefile includes, directly or indirectly, is what bgldepend calls a dependency. These dependencies are then written to a makefile in such a way that make(1) will know which object files must be recompiled when a dependency has changed.
By default, bgldepend writes its output on the standard output device. If bgldepend is provided with a -o makefile option, it will update the makefile file. That is, it will search the makefile for the line:
Is an file implementing a module.
reads that file to discover the name of the implemented module.
- -search-path <path>
Add path to the directory list read for searching Bigloo source files.
- -exclude-path <path>
Exclude path from the directory list read for searching Bigloo
- -suffix <suf>
Adds suf to the bmake source file suffixes list. Default
suffixes are "scm", "sch" and "bgl".
- -o <makefile>
The name of the makefile file to be updated
Normally, bgldepend will be used in a makefile target so that typing ``make bgldepend'' will bring the dependencies up to date for the makefile. For example,
