       gnatstub - Generate skeletons for Ada package bodies


       gnatstub [OPTION]... filename [directory]


       gnatstub  is  an  Ada  library  unit  body sample generator. It takes a
       source file containing the source of an Ada  library  unit  declaration
       and  generates  the  sample  body for this unit in another source file.
       Sample body is a kind of "minimal", but compilable  body  for  a  given
       unit declaration.

       gnatstub   is  an  ASIS  application  developed  on  top  of  the  ASIS
       implementation for GNAT. The important thing to know about gnatstub  is
       that  to  create  a body, gnatstub first compiles the spec to create in
       your current directory the tree output file (or, simply, a tree  file).
       After  creating  a body, gnatstub deletes this tree file (the tree file
       may be kept by setting the corresponding  option).  Therefore,  if  you
       have some other ASIS-based tools built on top of ASIS-for-GNAT, working
       on the tree files located  in  your  current  directory,  be  aware  of
       possible  changes  in  the  set  of  tree  files  as  a result of using


       -f     Replace an existing body file (if any) with a  body  sample.  If
              destination directory contains a file which should be considered
              as the body  for  filename  according  to  the  GNAT  file  name
              conventions,  gnatstub  treats this file as a body for filename,
              and it does not create a sample body if ’-f’ option is not set;

       -hs    Put in body sample the comment header from  the  source  of  the
              library unit declaration contained in filename ("comment header"
              is all the comments preceding the compilation unit).

       -hg    Put in body sample a sample comment header.


       -I-    These options have just the same meaning as in calls to  gnatgcc
              or  gnatmake.  They are used to define the source search path in
              the call to gnatgcc issued by gnatstub to create the tree  file.
              Note,  that  to  create a body, gnatstub needs a legal Ada unit,
              therefore if filename depends on some unit  located  in  another
              directory, ’-I’ should be used to provide the path to this unit.

       -in    (n is a decimal natural number) Sets the indentation level in  a
              body  sample  to  n,  ’-i0’  means "no indentation", the default
              indentation is 3;

       -k     Do not remove the tree file: as default, gnatstub  removes  from
              the  current  directory the tree file created for filename after
              creating the body sampler. ’-k’ prevents deleting the tree file.

       -ln    (n  is  a decimal positive number) Sets maximum line length in a
              body sample to n, the default line length is 78;

       -q     Quiet mode: gnatstub does not generate  a  confirmation  when  a
              body  is  successfully  created  or a message when a body is not
              required for an argument unit.

       -t     Overwrite the existing  tree  file:  if  the  current  directory
              already contains the file which, according to the GNAT file name
              rules should be considered as a tree file for filename, gnatstub
              will  refuse  to  create  the  tree file needed to create a body
              sampler, unless ’-t’ option is set.

       -v     Verbose mode: gnatstub generates version information.


       gnatstub is free  software.  It  was  originally  developed  by  Alexei
       Kuchumov  as  a  part  of  collaboration  between  Software Engineering
       Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of  Technology  in  Lausanne,
       Switzerland,  in  cooperation  with  the  Scientific  Research Computer
       Center of Moscow State University (SRCC MSU),  Russia.  This  work  was
       supported  by  a  grant  from the Swiss National Science Foundation, no
       7SUPJ048247, funding a project entitled "Development of ASIS  for  GNAT
       with industry quality".

       Now   gnatstub   is   maintained   by   Ada   Core   Technologies,  Inc

       This manual  page  was  written  by  Ludovic  Brenta  <ludovic@ludovic-> for the Debian project.
