The following switches provide control over the generation of error messages from the binder:
xxx. This is useful in the case of some cross-building environments, where the actual main program is separate from the one generated by
GNATwere used for compilation
Normally failure of such checks, in accordance with the consistency requirements of the Ada Reference Manual, causes error messages to be generated which abort the binder and prevent the output of a binder file and subsequent link to obtain an executable.
-t switch converts these error messages
into warnings, so that
binding and linking can continue to completion even in the presence of such
errors. The result may be a failed link (due to missing symbols), or a
non-functional executable which has undefined semantics.
This means that
-t should be used only in unusual situations,
with extreme care.
