3.3. Depscan - Scan for software dependencies

Depscan scans ELF executables' library dependencies and generates a nice report for you. This makes it easier to find out what your software's, dependencies are. Listaller uses this tool at build-time to generate the automatic dependency-list, but you may use it as well to find out why an application has dependency X.

3.3.1. What is Depscan?

Depscan scans ELF executables library dependencies and generates a nice dependency report for you. This makes it easier to find out what your software's, dependencies are.
Listaller uses this tool at build-time to generate the automatic dependency-list, but you may use it as well to find out why an application has dependency X. It will also show you immediately if you are using Franmeworks which are present on the system, or if you use Modules which can not be satisfied automatically.
Depscan will later be extended to support dependency-detection for other languages, e.g. Python/Ruby too.
