[erlang-questions] code garbage collector

Has anybody written a code garbage collector?

The root set would be a given module.

I want to statically extract all code that is reachable (recursively)
from the module and examine it.

I want the *opposite* of "including a dependency" but rather a tool that
garbage collects code reducing it to a minimal program.
