       gnatcheck - GNAT rule checking tool


       gnatcheck [OPTION]... filename [-cargs gcc_switches] [-rules rule_switches]

       gnatcheck [OPTION]... -files=filename [-cargs gcc_switches] [-rules rule_switches]


       gnatcheck  checks the conformance of Ada source text with rules and produces a report file
       for later analysis as well as on standard output.

       In the first form, gnatcheck examines  the  specified  Ada  source  files  (wildcards  are

       In the second form, gnatcheck examines the Ada source files listed in the specified file.

       gnatcheck is an ASIS application developed on top of the ASIS implementation for GNAT.  As
       such, it reads tree files (*.adt) produced by the compiler to accomplish  its  goals,  and
       invokes gnatgcc for this.


       -a     Process RTL units.

       -cargs gcc_switches
              Pass gcc_switches to GCC when producing the tree files.

       -d     Debug mode.

       -dd    Progress indicator mode, for use in the GNAT Programming Studio.

       -h     Print the list of built-in rules.

       -l     Full source location chains in report file.

       -q     Quiet mode: do not report detections on standard output.

       -rules rule_switches
              rule_switches can be any combination of the following:

                     Read rule options from file

              +ALL   Turn all rules on.

              -ALL   Turn all rules off.

                     Turn the specified rule on, passing it optional parameters.

                     Turn the specified rule off.

                     Turn off some of the checks for the specified rule.

              rule_id is any of the rules listed with the -h option.

       -s     Short form of the report file.

       -sn    Include only section n (n in 1 .. 3) in the report file.

       -v     Verbose mode.
