Chapter 2. Basic usage

The commandline synopsis for basic usage is

fastdep [--version] sourcefile...

fastdep --version will show version information and a short copyright statement and exit immediatly.

To produce dependency information for two files named and, execute fastdep from the shell.

The result will be written to standard output. For example it could be

file1.o: \
	header1.h \
	header2.h \
file2.o: \
	header1.h \
	header3.h \

To save the output, use your shell to redirect standard output to a file which you can include in a makefile.
