clean up definition file

by Freddy   Last Updated January 11, 2019 11:23 AM

I've got a problem with my custom definitions-file. The file has hundreds of command definitions (with \newcommand or \renewcommand; mainly shortcuts for mathematical terms, programm names,...). I used the commands in this file to write a document. But now I saw, that im not allowed to submit such additional files, so all command-definitions have to be placed in the main-file. I don't want to search for all used commands by hand and I also don't want to paste the whole definitions-file into the main-file, because I only use a small subset.

So my question is: Is there any way to get a list of the commands in my definitions-file that I use in the main-file? Or is there a way to automaticly delete all unused commands in the definitions-file?

I don't now if it is important in that case, but I compile the document with latex-dvips-ps2pdf.

Thanks in advance! Greetings,
