3.3.20. File dependendies File dependendies

This reports displays the file dependencies, based on definition usages.

This report displays all dependencies between files. A file depends on another when it makes usage of one of its definitions : constant, functions, classes, traits, interfaces.

For example, A.php depends on B.php, because A.php uses the function foo, which is defined in the B.php file. On the other hand, B.php doesn’t depends on A.php, as a function may be defined, but not used.

This diagram shows which files may be used without others.

The resulting diagram is a DOT file, which is readable with [Graphviz](https://www.graphviz.org/about/). Those viewers will display the diagram, and also convert it to other format, such as PNG, JPEG, PDF or others.

Another version of the same diagram is called Filedependencieshtml
