When I look at its description [ 
http://www.freepascal.org/tools/ppudump.var ] ("ppudump writes the 
contents of a Free Pascal unit file to standard output. It gives a 
listing of all definitions in the unit file. The format of the listing 
can be controlled by the options.") it's not clear to me why ppudump 
must be a strictly independent stand-alone executable.

Could you elaborate why you think it should be.
