       adactl_fix - Ada rules controller, automatic fixer


       adactl_fix [-v] [-o output_prefix] file...

       adactl_fix -h


       adactl_fix   reads   the  indicated  files,  as  produced  by  adactl,  and  performs  the
       corresponding fixes. The modified files are printed on the standard output, which  can  be
       redirected to a file for later splitting at an appropriate place with gnatchop.

       This command line tool directly edits source files. A similar interactive tool is provided
       as a gnat-gps plugin. If you select this tool, you should read the related section of  the
       reference manual before using it.

       AdaControl  is  an Ada rules controller. It is used to control that Ada software meets the
       requirements of a number of parameterizable rules. It is not intended to supplement checks
       made  by  the  compiler,  but  rather to search for particular violations of good-practice
       rules, or to check that some rules are obeyed project-wide.

       Commercial     support      is      available      for      AdaControl,      see      file
       /usr/share/doc/adacontrol/support.txt.  If  you  plan  to  use  AdaControl  for industrial
       projects, or if you want it to be customized or extended to match your own  needs,  please

       -o output_prefix
              Output  each  modified  file  to  a  file  whose  name  is  obtained  by  prefixing
              output_prefix to the original name of the corresponding source file. The prefix can
              be any string, and is not analyzed by Adactl_Fix. A prefix like result/ will result
              in all the output going to  the  directory  result,  with  the  same  name  as  the
              original.  Alternatively,  a prefix like new- will result in all output files being
              in the same directory. Adactl_Fix will overwrite any existing file  with  the  same

       -v     Display actions to standard output.

       -h     Print a brief help message and exits, ignoring all other options and parameters.
