fixincludes - Reduce the number of #includes in KDE source files
] [-e, --experimental
] [-m, --modify
fixincludes tries to reduce the number of #includes in C++ source
files. Much of it's processing is specific to KDE sources and so it
might not work so well with sources for non-KDE applications.
The following problems are identified by fixincludes:
· Including headers that are no longer supported but which exist for
compatibility with older Qt/KDE versions;
· Including the same file multiple times.
There is also an experimental mode which tries removing each #include
one at a time (with a few exceptions) to see whether the source still
compiles. Note that this experimental mode will modify the original
By default the sources will not be modified; the identified problems
will simply be written to standard output.
The list of C++ sources to examine should be given on the command-line.
If no files are given, all C++ sources in or beneath the current
directory will be examined (with the exception of directories whose
Makefile.am contains -UQT_NO_COMPAT or -UKDE_NO_COMPAT)
This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.
Verbose mode. Additional debugging output is written to standard
Experimental mode, as described above in detail. Note that this
option implies --modify.
As well as writing messages to standard output, actually modify the
original sources to fix any problems that were found.
