Batch file to get a (non-sorted non-unique) list of units from a Delphi compiled map file

The Wiert Corner – A few weeks ago in When you get “TfsScript.Execute” throwing a “Unregistered version of FastScript.” I wrote about “a process that explains any modules in the MAP file not resulting in DCU files”.

Delphi To Go: Include resource files in your Delphi build process
