-- A simple preelaborable subset of Text_IO capabilities
-- A simple text I/O package that can be used for simple I/O functions in
-- user programs as required. This package is also preelaborated, unlike
-- Text_IO, and can thus be with'ed by preelaborated library units.
-- Note that Data_Error is not raised by these subprograms for bad data.
-- If such checks are needed then the regular Text_IO package must be used.
package GNAT.IO is
pragma Preelaborate (IO);
type File_Type is limited private;
-- Specifies file to be used (the only possibilities are Standard_Output
-- and Standard_Error). There is no Create or Open facility that would
-- allow more general use of file names.
function Standard_Output return File_Type;
function Standard_Error return File_Type;
-- These functions are the only way to get File_Type values
procedure Get (X : out Integer);
procedure Get (C : out Character);
procedure Get_Line (Item : out String; Last : out Natural);
-- These routines always read from Standard_Input
procedure Put (File : File_Type; X : Integer);
procedure Put (X : Integer);
-- Output integer to specified file, or to current output file, same
-- output as if Ada.Text_IO.Integer_IO had been instantiated for Integer.
procedure Put (File : File_Type; C : Character);
procedure Put (C : Character);
-- Output character to specified file, or to current output file
procedure Put (File : File_Type; S : String);
procedure Put (S : String);
-- Output string to specified file, or to current output file
procedure Put_Line (File : File_Type; S : String);
procedure Put_Line (S : String);
-- Output string followed by new line to specified file, or to
-- current output file.
procedure New_Line (File : File_Type; Spacing : Positive := 1);
procedure New_Line (Spacing : Positive := 1);
-- Output new line character to specified file, or to current output file

-- Set_Output is made.
