mkdep(1)mkdep(1)NAMEmkdep - generate dependency list from a C program
SYNOPSISmkdep [-a] [-f depend_file] [-p] [cc_options] file...
The mkdep command generates a dependency list file from a C source pro‐
Causes mkdep 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, mkdep creates it. Specifies a name for the dependency file;
overrides the default file name Inhibits mkdep from appending the suf‐
fix 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 for‐
matted 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.
By default, mkdep writes to a file named -f option to specify an alter‐
native 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
