package Sem_Disp is
procedure Check_Controlling_Formals (Typ : Entity_Id; Subp : Entity_Id);
-- Check that all controlling parameters of Subp are of type Typ,
-- that defaults for controlling parameters are tag-indeterminate,
-- and that the nominal subtype of the parameters and result
-- statically match the first subtype of the controlling type.
procedure Check_Dispatching_Call (N : Node_Id);
-- Check if a call is a dispatching call. The subprogram is known to
-- be a dispatching operation. The call is dispatching if all the
-- controlling actuals are dynamically tagged. This procedure is called
-- after overload resolution, so the call is known to be unambiguous.
procedure Check_Dispatching_Operation (Subp, Old_Subp : Entity_Id);
-- Add "Subp" to the list of primitive operations of the corresponding type
-- if it has a parameter of this type and is defined at a proper place for
-- primitive operations (new primitives are only defined in package spec,
-- overridden operation can be defined in any scope). If Old_Subp is not
-- Empty we are in the overriding case.
procedure Check_Operation_From_Incomplete_Type
(Subp : Entity_Id;
Typ : Entity_Id);
-- If a primitive operation was defined for the incomplete view of the
-- type, and the full type declaration is a derived type definition,
-- the operation may override an inherited one.
procedure Check_Operation_From_Private_View (Subp, Old_Subp : Entity_Id);
-- Add "Old_Subp" to the list of primitive operations of the corresponding
-- tagged type if it is the full view of a private tagged type. The Alias
-- of "OldSubp" is adjusted to point to the inherited procedure of the
-- full view because it is always this one which has to be called.
function Find_Controlling_Arg (N : Node_Id) return Node_Id;
-- Returns the actual controlling argument if N is dynamically tagged,
-- and Empty if it is not dynamically tagged.
function Find_Dispatching_Type (Subp : Entity_Id) return Entity_Id;
-- Check whether a subprogram is dispatching, and find the tagged
-- type of the controlling argument or arguments.
function Is_Dynamically_Tagged (N : Node_Id) return Boolean;
-- Used to determine whether a call is dispatching, i.e. if is an
-- an expression of a class_Wide type, or a call to a function with
-- controlling result where at least one operand is dynamically tagged.
function Is_Tag_Indeterminate (N : Node_Id) return Boolean;
-- An expression is tag-indeterminate if it is a call that dispatches
-- on result, and all controlling operands are also indeterminate.
-- Such a function call may inherit a tag from an enclosing call.
procedure Propagate_Tag (Control : Node_Id; Actual : Node_Id);
-- If a function call is tag-indeterminate, its controlling argument is
-- found in the context; either an enclosing call, or the left-hand side
-- of the enclosing assignment statement. The tag must be propagated
-- recursively to the tag-indeterminate actuals of the call.
