fixincludes − Reduce the number of #includes in KDE source files
fixincludes [−v, −−verbose] [−e, −−experimental] [−m, −−modify] [file] [−−help]
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 sources.
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 output.
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.
