listing user defined, independent variables

Hi,

 

I have a notebook in which there are over 1300 variables (symbols) defined.
The vast majority of these are dependent variables. I can get a list of them
all with Names["Global`*"], but what I really want is a list of only the
independent variables. Is there any obvious way to do this? Mathematica must
"know" which variables are functions of other symbols, so I was hoping that
there would be an "attribute" of a dependent variable that I could use as a
filter on Names[]. Any thoughts? I am using V5.1.

 

Cheers,

 

Paul
