    unneeded includes

    Anybody knows a good tool that removed unneeded #includes from large projects?

    PC-lint won't remove them, but it will tell you which ones are unnecessary.
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void)
       return 0;
    test.c 10: [766 Info] Header file 'C:\Borland\BCC55\Include\stdio.h' not used in module 'test.c'
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I'd really like FlexeLint, but it's unbelievably expensive. I'm not sure why PC-Lint is so much cheaper. Makes it almost worth installing a DOS/Windows machine here just to run it.
