       gate2 - generate Ada applications from a GLADE XML file


       gate2 file


       gate2 is the static version of the program transforming a file produced
       by glade-2(1), the Gtk GUI builder,  into  an  Ada  program.   It  will
       generate  a  set  of  Ada  files that, when compiled, will recreate the
       interface you just designed in glade-2(1).   The  most  important  file
       created  by  gate2  is  called callback_<project_name>.adb and contains
       stubs for all the callbacks you declared in Glade.

       Note that you can easily go back  to  glade-2  any  time,  modify  your
       interface,  and  have  gate2  regenerate  a  set  of  files.  All  your
       modifications will be kept in the new files. For that, gate2 creates  a
       directory  .gate2  in the current directory. Please do not delete it if
       you want gate2 to be able to keep your changes from one version to  the
       next.   Also  note that to be able to keep track of your modifications,
       gate2 relies on patch and diff being available on your system.  If  you
       don't  have  a working set of diff/patch, configure will simply replace
       them by null operations.
