Utilities

AdaControl

Another ASIS-based application to control various style or programming rules in your Ada programs. Given the growing importance and success of AdaControl, it has now its own page; for more information, click here.

AdaDep

An ASIS-based application to help you understand what uses what in your projects; very useful in reorganizing packages. AdaDep tells, for each package used by a module, which elements from the package are actually used.

Note: Executable distributions work only with the latest public distribution of GNAT. If you are using a different version, please download the source version and recompile.

AdaSubst

An ASIS-based applications to help you reorganize your projects. AdaSubst performs semantic substitutions, i.e. substitutions that take Ada rules into account. With AdaSubst, you can change an identifier, or move elements from a package to another one, and change automatically all previous modules to account for the change.

Note: Executable distributions work only with the latest public distribution of GNAT (GPL2013). If you are using a different version, please download the source version and recompile.

Normalize

This utility reads an Ada source text and rewrites it after eliminating all unnecessary spacing and comments, and changing everything (except character litterals and strings) to upper-case.

Goal: it permits comparison of Ada source files that ignores presentation changes.

Tcl2ada

This small utility is helpful to Tash programmers. It automatically includes a Tcl script file as a properly formated string into an Ada program.

Ada components

Debug

This package is an aid to debugging, by allowing traces of execution path. It is especially useful when used with multi-task programs, since traces from different tasks are handled separately. A full documentation is available.

OS_Services

This package allows you to access common features of the underlying operating system, like copying files, querying the list of files in a directory, querying or changing the current directory, etc. A full documentation is available.

Protection

This package provides a kind of evolved semaphore, as well as utilities for protecting a procedure call from abortion. A full documentation is available.

Storage_Stream

This package provides a stream that writes data of any type at any memory address. Quite convenient for writing low-level interfaces. See documentation in the package specification.

Variable_String

This package manages variable length strings. It is handy for storing and manipulating simple strings; an input-output package is provided as a child. A full documentation is available.


That's all for now, but more is to come. Stay tuned, come and visit us every now and then !
