[utils] New script ``

Authored by simon_tatham on Jul 2 2020, 3:45 AM.



This can be run after a ninja-based build, and analyzes the ninja
build files and dependency database to spot any missing dependencies
in the build scripts.

I wrote it in the course of investigating D82659, and it seems likely
to be useful again.

This also means you have to make sure that latter deps for a file overwrite earlier deps for a file, iirc (the old entry might be stale)

They do, as far as I can tell: if I change the includes in a source file and re-run ninja, then the result of ninja -t deps includes a stanza showing the new dependencies for the generated object, and no stanza for the old dependencies.

From reading the source comments, it looks as if previous versions of the dependencies for a file might sometimes still exist in the .ninja_deps log on disk, but they're not printed by the deps tool I'm calling here.
