C - used and unused constants in header files, how to resolve?

Can anyone recommend the best way to find dead constant defines in a header that is included into a module, and or the constants that are used?

Over time I have added defines to header files and would like to clean up the headers now, but it is an overwhelming task. There are many headers and some have a few constants that are needed and many that are not. Short of commenting out the lines and compiling, or doing a search through each file with the definition I can not see a good way to do this. Does anyone know of a software tool that would list all constants used versus dead constants in a module. Or is there a way to do this in CW? We have the professional version of CW.

Thanks inadvance

Robert
