NAME

adactl - Ada rules controller

SYNOPSIS

adactl [options] unit [[+|-]unit | [@]file] ... [-- ASIS options]

adactl -h rule ... | all | commands | license | list | options | rules | version

DESCRIPTION

AdaControl is an Ada rules controller. It is used to control that Ada software meets the requirements of a number of parameterizable rules. It is not intended to supplement checks made by the compiler, but rather to search for particular violations of good-practice rules, or to check that some rules are obeyed project-wide.

Commercial support is available for AdaControl, see file /usr/share/doc/adacontrol/support.txt. If you plan to use AdaControl for industrial projects, or if you want it to be customized or extended to match your own needs, please contact Adalog at info [AT] adalog.fr.
