ppumove

ppmove(1)                   Free Pascal unit mover                   ppmove(1)



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.
