fixincludes - Reduce the number of #includes in KDE source files

[ file] [--help]
tries to reduce the number of #includes in C++ source files.
Much of it's processing is specific to KDE sources and so it might not work so
well with sources for non-KDE applications.
The following problems are identified by fixincludes
•Including headers that are no longer
supported but which exist for compatibility with older Qt/KDE versions;
•Including the same file multiple
There is also an experimental mode which tries removing each #include one at a
time (with a few exceptions) to see whether the source still compiles. Note
that this experimental mode will modify the original sources.
By default the sources will not be modified; the identified problems will simply
be written to standard output.
The list of C++ sources to examine should be given on the command-line. If no
files are given, all C++ sources in or beneath the current directory will be
examined (with the exception of directories whose Makefile.am contains

Verbose mode. Additional debugging output is
written to standard output.
Experimental mode, as described above in
detail. Note that this option implies --modify.
As well as writing messages to standard
output, actually modify the original sources to fix any problems that were
