check-module - Man Page

program to check gnulib modules.


check-module [Options] FILE...


The GNU portability library is a macro system and C declarations and definitions for commonly-used API elements and abstracted system behaviors. It can be used to improve portability and other functionality in your programs.

check-module reads a module description file and derives the set of files included directly by any .c or .h file listed in the `Files:' section. First, it takes the union of all such sets for any dependent modules. Then, it compares that set with the set derived from the names listed in the various Files: sections.
