Dominique,

Thanks for replying.

Actually, I *thought* classfileset was the right approach too but when I ran
it, it only gave me the immediate dependencies and wouldn't recurse any
further; my immediate dependencies have many dependencies of their own. I
sent a question about that a few minutes before I asked my question about
'depend' which gives the full details.

If you are knowledgeable about classfileset, perhaps you could take a minute
to tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Yep. That's what it does. Remove/delete .class file on disk ;-)

Then what you want is in fact <classfileset>, no? --DD
