2.189 Pragma Unsuppress


pragma Unsuppress (IDENTIFIER [, [On =>] NAME]);

This pragma undoes the effect of a previous pragma Suppress. If there is no corresponding pragma Suppress in effect, it has no effect. The range of the effect is the same as for pragma Suppress. The meaning of the arguments is identical to that used in pragma Suppress.

One important application is to ensure that checks are on in cases where code depends on the checks for its correct functioning, so that the code will compile correctly even if the compiler switches are set to suppress checks. For example, in a program that depends on external names of tagged types and wants to ensure that the duplicated tag check occurs even if all run-time checks are suppressed by a compiler switch, the following configuration pragma will ensure this test is not suppressed:

pragma Unsuppress (Duplicated_Tag_Check);

This pragma is standard in Ada 2005. It is available in all earlier versions of Ada as an implementation-defined pragma.

Note that in addition to the checks defined in the Ada RM, GNAT recogizes a number of implementation-defined check names. See the description of pragma Suppress for full details.
