In reply to Tony: I don't think that there are many programs with no dependencies at all. Even "Hello World" will have dependencies although they aren't listed in the example above. C programs can't even print a line of text on the command line without using a "library", albeit one that hardly ever changes. Other libraries or modules such as the Toolbox will be used if the WIMP interface is any more than trivial (and there ARE alternative versions of the Toolbox). Even OS functions in the ROM constitute dependencies, so unless your program pokes the memory directly to do its I/O, it will have dependencies.
