--  This package provides some useful utility subprograms that provide access
--  to source code information known at compile time. These subprograms are
--  intrinsic operations that provide information known to the compiler in
--  a form that can be embedded into the source program for identification
--  and logging purposes. For example, an exception handler can print out
--  the name of the source file in which the exception is handled.

package GNAT.Source_Info is
pragma Pure (Source_Info);

   function File return String;
   --  Return the name of the current file, not including the path information.
   --  The result is considered to be a static string constant.

   function Line return Positive;
   --  Return the current input line number. The result is considered
   --  to be a static expression.

   function Source_Location return String;
   --  Return a string literal of the form "name:line", where name is the
   --  current source file name without path information, and line is the
   --  current line number. In the event that instantiations are involved,
   --  additional suffixes of the same form are appended after the separating
   --  string " instantiated at ". The result is considered to be a static
   --  string constant.

   function Enclosing_Entity return String;
   --  Return the name of the current subprogram, package, task, entry or
   --  protected subprogram. The string is in exactly the form used for the
   --  declaration of the entity (casing and encoding conventions), and is
   --  considered to be a static string constant.
   --  Note: if this function is used at the outer level of a generic
   --  package, the string returned will be the name of the instance,
   --  not the generic package itself. This is useful in identifying
   --  and logging information from within generic templates.
