package Gen_IL is -- generate intermediate language
-- This package and children generates the main intermediate language used
-- by the GNAT compiler, which is a decorated syntax tree.
-- The generated Ada packages are:
-- Seinfo
-- Sinfo.Nodes
-- Einfo.Entities
-- Nmake
-- Seinfo_Tables
-- We also generate C code:
-- einfo.h
-- sinfo.h
-- snames.h
-- It is necessary to look at this generated code in order to understand
-- the compiler. In addition, it is necessary to look at comments in the
-- spec and body of Gen_IL.
-- Note that the Gen_IL "compiler" and the GNAT Ada compiler are separate
-- programs, with no dependencies between them in either direction. That
-- is, Gen_IL does not say "with" of GNAT units, and GNAT does not say
-- "with Gen_IL". There are many things declared in Gen_IL and GNAT with
-- the same name; these are typically related, but they are not the same
-- thing.
-- Misc declarations used throughout:
type Root_Int is new Integer;
function Image (X : Root_Int) return String;
-- Without the extra blank. You can derive from Root_Int or the subtypes
-- below, and inherit a convenient Image function that leaves out that
-- blank.
subtype Root_Nat is Root_Int range 0 .. Root_Int'Last;
subtype Root_Pos is Root_Int range 1 .. Root_Int'Last;
function Capitalize (S : String) return String;
procedure Capitalize (S : in out String);
-- Turns an identifier into Mixed_Case
-- The following declares a minimal implementation of formatted output
-- that is piggybacked on Ada.Streams.Stream_IO for bootstrap reasons.
-- It uses LF as universal line terminator to make it host independent.
type Sink is record
File : Ada.Streams.Stream_IO.File_Type;
Indent : Natural;
New_Line : Boolean;
end record;
procedure Create_File (Buffer : in out Sink; Name : String);
procedure Increase_Indent (Buffer : in out Sink; Amount : Natural);
procedure Decrease_Indent (Buffer : in out Sink; Amount : Natural);
procedure Put (Buffer : in out Sink; Item : String);
LF : constant String := "" & ASCII.LF;
