  1. While working on a tool for cleaning up uses clauses I stumbled upon this beast (slightly changed to protect the innocent): {$if defined(DEBUG) or defined(DEBUG_SPECIAL)} uses {$ifend} {$IFDEF DEBUG} dialogs {$ENDIF} //<some comment about the following ifdef> {$IFDEF DEBUG_SPECIAL} mmsystem, // timeGetTime() messages {$ENDIF} {$if defined(DEBUG) or defined(DEBUG_SPECIAL)} ; {$ifend} If you are only looking for uses clauses inside some Delphi sources and try to avoid a full featured parser, you will have a pretty hard job to detect, parse and interpret that one correctly. So, if you are interested to make any use of such a tool, please do me a favor: Don't write your code that way! It is hard to read for humans anyway.
