18.3 Switches for gnatmem

gnatmem recognizes the following switches:

Quiet. Gives the minimum output needed to identify the origin of the memory leaks. Omit statistical information.
N is an integer literal (usually between 1 and 10) which controls the depth of the backtraces defining allocation root. The default value for N is 1. The deeper the backtrace, the more precise the localization of the root. Note that the total number of roots can depend on this parameter.
-o file
Direct the gdb output to the specified file. The gdb script used to generate this output is also saved in the file gnatmem.tmp.
-i file
Do the gnatmem processing starting from file which has been generated by a previous call to gnatmem with the -o switch or gmem.out produced by GMEM mode. This is useful for post mortem processing.
