NAME pfni - Print Full Name Image of an Ada entity
SYNOPSIS pfni [-sofd] [-p project-file] unit[:line-number[:column-number]] [-- ASIS options] pfni -h
DESCRIPTION pfni is a companion program to adactl(1). It prints the full expanded name of entities declared or referenced by a specified Ada compilation unit. This makes it easier to des‐ ignate the entities when writing new rules for AdaControl. Commercial support is available for AdaControl, see file /usr/share/doc/adacontrol/sup‐ port.txt. If you plan to use AdaControl for industrial projects, or if you want it to be customized or extended to match your own needs, please contact Adalog at
OPTIONS -d Enable debug mode. -f Full output: display all entities declared and referenced by unit. The default is to only display entities declared in unit. -h Prints a general help message. -o Also print overloading information. If you are calling a subprogram that has sev‐ eral overloadings and you are not sure which one is called, use pfni with the -o option on that line: the program will tell you the full name and profile of the called subprogram. -p project-file Use the specified Emacs ada-mode (*.adp) project file. -s Process the specification of unit; the default is to process the body. line-number Only display entities declared on that line. line-number:column-number Only display the entity at that line and column, if any.
