--  the otherwise undocumented debug switches that are also recognized.

package Switch.M is

   procedure Scan_Make_Switches (Switch_Chars : String);
   --  Procedures to scan out binder switches stored in the given string.
   --  The first character is known to be a valid switch character, and there
   --  are no blanks or other switch terminator characters in the string, so
   --  the entire string should consist of valid switch characters, except that
   --  an optional terminating NUL character is allowed. A bad switch causes
   --  a fatal error exit and control does not return. The call also sets
   --  Usage_Requested to True if a ? switch is encountered.

   procedure Normalize_Compiler_Switches
     (Switch_Chars : String;
      Switches     : in out Argument_List_Access;
      Last         : out Natural);
   --  Takes a compiler switch which potentially is equivalent to more
   --  that one simple switches and returns the equivalent list of simple
   --  switches that are stored in an ALI file. Switches will be extended
   --  if initially null or too short. Last indicates the index in Switches
   --  of the last simple switch. Last is equal to zero, if it has been
   --  determined that Switch_Chars is ill-formed or does not contain any
   --  switch that should be stored in an ALI file. Otherwise, the list of
   --  simple switches is Switches (Switches'First .. Last).
   --    Example: if Switch_Chars is equal to "-gnatAwue", then the list of
   --    simple switches will have 3 components: -gnatA, -gnatwu, -gnatwe.
   --  The String_Access components of Switches should not be deallocated:
   --  they are shallow copies of components in a table in the body.

   function Normalize_Compiler_Switches
     (Switch_Chars : String)
      return         Argument_List;
   --  Similar to the previous procedure. The return value is the list of
   --  simple switches. It may be an empty array if it has been determined
   --  that Switch_Chars is ill-formed or does not contain any switch that
   --  should be stored in an ALI file. The String_Access components of the
   --  returned value should not be deallocated.
