-- Initialization --
procedure Initialize;
-- Initialize this package for new compilation
-- Routines to Handle Unused References --
procedure Check_References (E : Entity_Id; Anod : Node_Id := Empty);
-- Called at the end of processing a declarative region. The entity E
-- is the entity for the scope. All entities declared in the region,
-- as indicated by First_Entity and the entity chain, are checked to
-- see if they are variables for which warnings need to be posted for
-- either no assignments, or a use before an assignment or no references
-- at all. The Anod node is present for the case of an accept statement,
-- and references the accept statement. This is used to place the warning
-- messages in the right place.
procedure Check_Unset_Reference (N : Node_Id);
-- N is the node for an expression which occurs in a reference position,
-- e.g. as the right side of an assignment. This procedure checks to see
-- if the node is a reference to a variable entity where the entity has
-- Not_Assigned set. If so, the Unset_Reference field is set if it is not
-- the first occurrence. No warning is posted, instead warnings will be
-- posted later by Check_References. The reason we do things that
-- way is that if there are no assignments anywhere, we prefer to flag
-- the entity, rather than a reference to it. Note that for the purposes
-- of this routine, a type conversion or qualified expression whose
-- expression is an entity is also processed. The reason that we do not
-- process these at the point of occurrence is that both these constructs
-- can occur in non-reference positions (e.g. as out parameters).
procedure Check_Unused_Withs (Spec_Unit : Unit_Number_Type := No_Unit);
-- This routine performs two kinds of checks. It checks that all with'ed
-- units are referenced, and that at least one entity of each with'ed
-- unit is referenced (the latter check catches units that are only
-- referenced in a use or package renaming statement). Appropriate
-- warning messages are generated if either of these situations is
-- detected.
-- A special case arises when a package body or a subprogram body with
-- a separate spec is being compiled. In this case, a with may appear
-- on the spec, but be needed only by the body. This still generates
-- a warning, but the text is different (the with is not redundant,
-- it is misplaced).
-- This special case is implemented by making an initial call to this
-- procedure with Spec_Unit set to the unit number of the separate spec.
-- This call does not generate any warning messages, but instead may
-- result in flags being set in the N_With_Clause node that record that
-- there was no use in the spec.
-- The main call (made after all units have been analyzed, with Spec_Unit
-- set to the default value of No_Unit) generates the required warnings
-- using the flags set by the initial call where appropriate to specialize
-- the text of the warning messages.
-- Output Routines --
procedure Output_Non_Modified_In_Out_Warnings;
-- Warnings about IN OUT parameters that could be IN are collected till
-- the end of the compilation process (see body of this routine for a
-- discussion of why this is done). This procedure outputs the warnings.
-- Note: this should be called before Output_Unreferenced_Messages, since
-- if we have an IN OUT warning, that's the one we want to see.
procedure Output_Obsolescent_Entity_Warnings (N : Node_Id; E : Entity_Id);
-- N is a reference to obsolescent entity E, for which appropriate warning
-- messages are to be generated (caller has already checked that warnings
-- are active and appropriate for this entity).
procedure Output_Unreferenced_Messages;
-- Warnings about unreferenced entities are collected till the end of
-- the compilation process (see Check_Unset_Reference for further
-- details). This procedure outputs waiting warnings, if any.
procedure Output_Unused_Warnings_Off_Warnings;
-- Warnings about pragma Warnings (Off, ent) statements that are unused,
-- or could be replaced by Unmodified/Unreferenced pragmas, are collected
-- till the end of the compilation process. This procedure outputs waiting
-- warnings if any.
-- Other Warning Routines --
procedure Check_Code_Statement (N : Node_Id);
-- Perform warning checks on a code statement node
procedure Check_Infinite_Loop_Warning (Loop_Statement : Node_Id);
-- N is the node for a loop statement. This procedure checks if a warning
-- for a possible infinite loop should be given for a suspicious WHILE or
-- EXIT WHEN condition.
procedure Check_Low_Bound_Tested (Expr : Node_Id);
-- Expr is the node for a comparison operation. This procedure checks if
-- the comparison is a source comparison of P'First with some other value
-- and if so, sets the Low_Bound_Tested flag on entity P to suppress
-- warnings about improper low bound assumptions (we assume that if the
-- code has a test that explicitly checks P'First, then it is not operating
-- in blind assumption mode).
procedure Warn_On_Constant_Valid_Condition (Op : Node_Id);
-- Determine the outcome of evaluating conditional or relational operator
-- Op assuming that its scalar operands are valid. Emit a warning when the
-- result of the evaluation is True or False.
procedure Warn_On_Known_Condition (C : Node_Id);
-- C is a node for a boolean expression resulting from a relational
-- or membership operation. If the expression has a compile time known
-- value, then a warning is output if all the following conditions hold:
-- 1. Original expression comes from source. We don't want to generate
-- warnings for internally generated conditionals.
-- 2. As noted above, the expression is a relational or membership
-- test, we don't want to generate warnings for boolean variables
-- since this is typical of conditional compilation in Ada.
-- 3. The expression appears in a statement, rather than a declaration.
-- In practice, most occurrences in declarations are legitimate
-- conditionalizations, but occurrences in statements are often
-- errors for which the warning is useful.
-- 4. The expression does not occur within an instantiation. A non-
-- static expression in a generic may become constant because of
-- the attributes of the actuals, and we do not want to warn on
-- these legitimate constant foldings.
-- If all these conditions are met, the warning is issued noting that
-- the result of the test is always false or always true as appropriate.
function Warn_On_Modified_As_Out_Parameter (E : Entity_Id) return Boolean;
-- Returns True if we should activate warnings for entity E being modified
-- as an out parameter. True if either Warn_On_Modified_Unread is set for
-- an only OUT parameter, or if Warn_On_All_Unread_Out_Parameters is set.
procedure Warn_On_Overlapping_Actuals (Subp : Entity_Id; N : Node_Id);
-- Called on a subprogram call. Checks whether an IN OUT actual that is
-- not by-copy may overlap with another actual, thus leading to aliasing
-- in the body of the called subprogram. This is indeed a warning in Ada
-- versions prior to Ada 2012, but, unless Opt.Error_To_Warning is set by
-- use of debug flag -gnatd.E, this is illegal and generates an error.
procedure Warn_On_Suspicious_Index (Name : Entity_Id; X : Node_Id);
-- This is called after resolving an indexed component or a slice. Name
-- is the entity for the name of the indexed array, and X is the subscript
-- for the indexed component case, or one of the bounds in the slice case.
-- If Name is an unconstrained parameter of a standard string type, and
-- the index is of the form of a literal or Name'Length [- literal], then
-- a warning is generated that the subscripting operation is possibly
-- incorrectly assuming a lower bound of 1.
procedure Warn_On_Suspicious_Update (N : Node_Id);
-- N is a semantically analyzed attribute reference Prefix'Update. Issue
-- a warning if Warn_On_Suspicious_Contract is set, and N is the left-hand
-- side or right-hand side of an equality or inequality of the form:
-- Prefix = Prefix'Update(...)
-- or
-- Prefix'Update(...) = Prefix
procedure Warn_On_Unassigned_Out_Parameter
(Return_Node : Node_Id;
Scope_Id : Entity_Id);
-- Called when processing a return statement given by Return_Node. Scope_Id
-- is the Entity_Id for the procedure in which the return statement lives.
-- A check is made for the case of a procedure with out parameters that
-- have not yet been assigned, and appropriate warnings are given.
procedure Warn_On_Useless_Assignment
(Ent : Entity_Id;
N : Node_Id := Empty);
-- Called to check if we have a case of a useless assignment to the given
-- entity Ent, as indicated by a non-empty Last_Assignment field. This call
-- should only be made if at least one of the flags Warn_On_Modified_Unread
-- or Warn_On_All_Unread_Out_Parameters is True, and if Ent is in the
-- extended main source unit. N is Empty for the end of block call
-- (warning message says value unreferenced), or it is the node for
-- an overwriting assignment (warning message points to this assignment).
procedure Warn_On_Useless_Assignments (E : Entity_Id);
pragma Inline (Warn_On_Useless_Assignments);
-- Called at the end of a block or subprogram. Scans the entities of the
-- block or subprogram to see if there are any variables for which useless
-- assignments were made (assignments whose values were never read).
-- Utility Routines --
function Has_Junk_Name (E : Entity_Id) return Boolean;
-- Return True if the entity name contains any of the following substrings:
-- discard
-- dummy
-- ignore
-- junk
-- unused
-- Used to suppress warnings on names matching these patterns. The contents
-- of Name_Buffer and Name_Len are destroyed by this call.
