-- GNAT was originally developed by the GNAT team at New York University. --
-- Extensive contributions were provided by Ada Core Technologies Inc. --
-- --
-- This package provides support for callbacks on exceptions.
-- These callbacks are called immediately when either a specific exception,
-- or any exception, is raised, before any other actions taken by raise, in
-- particular before any unwinding of the stack occcurs.
-- Callbacks for specific exceptions are registered through calls to
-- Register_Id_Action. Here is an example of code that uses this package to
-- automatically core dump when the exception Constraint_Error is raised.
-- Register_Id_Action (Constraint_Error'Identity, Core_Dump'Access);
-- Subprograms are also provided to list the currently registered exceptions,
-- or to convert from a string to an exception id.
-- This package can easily be extended, for instance to provide a callback
-- whenever an exception matching a regular expression is raised. The idea
-- is to register a global action, called whenever any exception is raised.
-- Dispatching can then be done directly in this global action callback.
with Ada.Exceptions; use Ada.Exceptions;
package GNAT.Exception_Actions is
type Exception_Action is access
procedure (Occurence : Exception_Occurrence);
-- General callback type whenever an exception is raised. The callback
-- procedure must not propagate an exception (execution of the program
-- is erroneous if such an exception is propagated).
procedure Register_Global_Action (Action : Exception_Action);
-- Action will be called whenever an exception is raised. Only one such
-- action can be registered at any given time, and registering a new action
-- will override any previous action that might have been registered.
-- Action is called before the exception is propagated to user's code.
-- If Action is null, this will in effect cancel all exception actions.
procedure Register_Id_Action
(Id : Exception_Id;
Action : Exception_Action);
-- Action will be called whenever an exception of type Id is raised. Only
-- one such action can be registered for each exception id, and registering
-- a new action will override any previous action registered for this
-- Exception_Id. Program_Error is raised if Id is Null_Id.
function Name_To_Id (Name : String) return Exception_Id;
-- Convert an exception name to an exception id. Null_Id is returned
-- if no such exception exists. Name must be an all upper-case string,
-- or the exception will not be found. The exception name must be fully
-- qualified (but not including Standard). It is not possible to convert
-- an exception that is declared within an unlabeled block.
-- Note: All non-predefined exceptions will return Null_Id for programs
-- compiled with pragma Restriction (No_Exception_Registration)
function Registered_Exceptions_Count return Natural;
-- Return the number of exceptions that have been registered so far.
-- Exceptions declared locally will not appear in this list until their
-- block has been executed at least once.
-- Note: The count includes only predefined exceptions for programs
-- compiled with pragma Restrictions (No_Exception_Registration).
type Exception_Id_Array is array (Natural range <>) of Exception_Id;
procedure Get_Registered_Exceptions
(List : out Exception_Id_Array;
Last : out Integer);
-- Return the list of registered exceptions.
-- Last is the index in List of the last exception returned.
-- An exception is registered the first time the block containing its
-- declaration is elaborated. Exceptions defined at library-level are
-- therefore immediately visible, whereas exceptions declared in local
-- blocks will not be visible until the block is executed at least once.
-- Note: The list contains only the predefined exceptions if the program
-- is compiled with pragma Restrictions (No_Exception_Registration);
procedure Core_Dump (Occurrence : Exception_Occurrence);
-- Dump memory (called a core dump in some systems), and abort execution
-- of the application.
