NAME

       asistant - interactive command-line ASIS tool

SYNOPSIS

       asistant program

DESCRIPTION

       ASIS  is  the  Ada  Semantic  Interface  Specification;  it  is an application programming
       interface that allows Ada programs to inspect the structure of other Ada programs.   GNAT,
       the  GNU  Ada  compiler, can parse Ada source text and produce tree files suitable for use
       through ASIS.

       asistant is an interactive command-line tool with a simple language  that  allows  you  to
       inspect  the  semantic  information about a compiled program.  Thus you can learn ASIS and
       try ASIS queries interactively before writing them in your programs.

       Lausanne,  Switzerland, in cooperation with the Scientific  Research  Computer  Center  of
       Moscow  State  University  (SRCC MSU), Russia,  with funding partially provided  by grants
