package Sem_Res is
-- As described in Sem_Ch4, the type resolution proceeds in two phases.
-- The first phase is a bottom up pass that is achieved during the
-- recursive traversal performed by the Analyze procedures. This phase
-- determines unambiguous types, and collects sets of possible types
-- where the interpretation is potentially ambiguous.
-- On completing this bottom up pass, which corresponds to a call to
-- Analyze on a complete context, the Resolve routine is called which
-- performs a top down resolution with recursive calls to itself to
-- resolve operands.
-- Since in practice a lot of semantic analysis has to be postponed until
-- types are known (e.g. static folding, setting of suppress flags), the
-- Resolve routines also complete the semantic analysis, and call the
-- expander for possibly expansion of the completely type resolved node.
procedure Resolve (N : Node_Id; Typ : Entity_Id);
procedure Resolve (N : Node_Id; Typ : Entity_Id; Suppress : Check_Id);
-- Top level type-checking procedure, called in a complete context. The
-- construct N, which is a subexpression, has already been analyzed, and
-- is required to be of type Typ given the analysis of the context (which
-- uses the information gathered on the bottom up phase in Analyze). The
-- resolve routines do various other processing, e.g. static evaluation.
-- If a Suppress argument is present, then the resolution is done with the
-- specified check suppressed (can be All_Checks to suppress all checks).
procedure Resolve (N : Node_Id);
-- A version of Resolve where the type to be used for resolution is
-- taken from the Etype (N). This is commonly used in cases where the
-- context does not add anything and the first pass of analysis found
-- the correct expected type.
procedure Resolve_Discrete_Subtype_Indication
(N : Node_Id;
Typ : Entity_Id);
-- Resolve subtype indications in choices (case statements and
-- aggregates) and in index constraints. Note that the resulting Etype
-- of the subtype indication node is set to the Etype of the contained
-- range (i.e. an Itype is not constructed for the actual subtype).
procedure Resolve_Entry (Entry_Name : Node_Id);
-- Find name of entry being called, and resolve prefix of name with its
-- own type. For now we assume that the prefix cannot be overloaded and
-- the name of the entry plays no role in the resolution.
procedure Analyze_And_Resolve (N : Node_Id);
procedure Analyze_And_Resolve (N : Node_Id; Typ : Entity_Id);
procedure Analyze_And_Resolve
(N : Node_Id;
Typ : Entity_Id;
Suppress : Check_Id);
procedure Analyze_And_Resolve
(N : Node_Id;
Suppress : Check_Id);
-- These routines combine the effect of Analyze and Resolve. If a Suppress
-- argument is present, then the analysis is done with the specified check
-- suppressed (can be All_Checks to suppress all checks). These checks are
-- suppressed for both the analysis and resolution. If the type argument
-- is not present, then the Etype of the expression after the Analyze
-- call is used for the Resolve.
procedure Check_Parameterless_Call (N : Node_Id);
-- Several forms of names can denote calls to entities without para-
-- meters. The context determines whether the name denotes the entity
-- or a call to it. When it is a call, the node must be rebuilt
-- accordingly and renalyzed to obtain possible interpretations.
-- The name may be that of an overloadable construct, or it can be an
-- explicit dereference of a prefix that denotes an access to subprogram.
-- In that case, we want to convert the name into a call only if the
-- context requires the return type of the subprogram. Finally, a
-- parameterless protected subprogram appears as a selected component.
-- The parameter T is the Typ for the corresponding resolve call.
procedure Pre_Analyze_And_Resolve (N : Node_Id; T : Entity_Id);
-- Performs a pre-analysis of expression node N. During pre-analysis
-- N is analyzed and then resolved against type T, but no expansion
-- is carried out for N or its children. For more info on pre-analysis
-- read the spec of Sem.
procedure Pre_Analyze_And_Resolve (N : Node_Id);
-- Same, but use type of node because context does not impose a single
-- type.
procedure Resolve_Implicit_Type (N : Node_Id) renames Resolve;
pragma Inline (Resolve_Implicit_Type);
-- We use this renaming to make the application of Inline very explicit
-- to this version, since other versions of Resolve are not inlined.
