Good tool

This tool analyzed a massive list of .PBLs (well over 100) for unused objects in about 5 hours.

Visual Expert 6.1 GPF'ed after about 15 minutes.

Nicely integrated into the PB IDE as well.

Thanks. I tested right now with 84 PBLs. There are totaly 3597 objects in my libraries.  It took 7 minutes and 10 second to search unused objects.  How it can take 5 hours? Anyway I am trying to optimize performans.

The object count in the libraries I scanned exceeds 10000.  The Target scanned was a 'made up' one consisting of all objects in 40 or so separate targets combined into a huge library list.

I checked but could not find something to improve performance. The only code related performance is ExportLibrary function of PowerBuilder. PbTools is as fast as this function. If you run application for PBLs in the network, it is going to be slower.
