BGLDEPEND(1)                General Commands Manual               BGLDEPEND(1)



NAME
       bgldepend - create Bigloo dependencies in makefiles


SYNOPSIS
       bgldepend [ options ] sourcefile ...


DESCRIPTION
       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:
        # bgldepend start (don't edit)
       and
        # bgldepend stop

       Dependencies will be written in between these two lines.


OPTIONS
       file            Is an file implementing a module.  Afile 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 source files.


       -suffix <suf>   Adds suf to the bmake source file suffixes list.
                       Default suffixes are "scm", "sch" and "bgl".


       -v              Verbose mode


       -o <makefile>   The name of the makefile file to be updated


EXAMPLE
       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,

          MAIN=foo.scm
          SRCS = $(MAIN) bar.scm gee.scm
          bgldepend:
              bgldepend -o Makefile $(MAIN)
