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

       ppdep - The FPC Pascal unit mover.

       ppumove [-sqbhw]	[-o File] [-d path] [-e	extension] files...

       ppumove	collects  one  or  several Free	Pascal unit files and archives
       them in a static	or shared library.

       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.

       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	exten-
	      sion as the units	you want to move, not specifying the  destina-
	      tion 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  ex-
	      tension.	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

       -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.
