Hi All,

To aid completion of valuable Removal of Dead Code (Implementation) work
funded by OpenSFS [1], Intel HPDD developed a tool to help identify
unused functions, structure members, macros, and variables. I'm pleased
that this tool is now available for anyone to pursue code clean-up work
with automated help.

This tool uses the Clang front-end, augmented by a specially written
plugin. A guide to getting stared is available here: 

The plugin code that provides the necessary augmentation to Clang is
available here:
The code is available under GPLv2.

best regards,
