2.93 Pragma Keep_Names


pragma Keep_Names ([On =>] enumeration_first_subtype_LOCAL_NAME);

The LOCAL_NAME argument must refer to an enumeration first subtype in the current declarative part. The effect is to retain the enumeration literal names for use by Image and Value even if a global Discard_Names pragma applies. This is useful when you want to generally suppress enumeration literal names and for example you therefore use a Discard_Names pragma in the gnat.adc file, but you want to retain the names for specific enumeration types.
