-e <regex>, -regex <regex>
Finds dependencies in packages matching the specified regular expression pat‐
tern. The -p and -e options are mutually exclusive.
Restricts analysis to classes matching pattern. This option filters the list of
classes to be analyzed. It can be used together with -p and -e .
Finds class-level dependences in JDK internal APIs (which may change or dis‐
appear in even minor platform releases).
Restricts analysis to APIs—for example, dependencies from the signature of
public and protected members of public classes including field type, method
parameter types, returned type, and checked exception types.
Recursively traverses all dependencies.
