gnatmetric - Ada metrics tool

GNATMETRIC(1) ASIS Tools GNATMETRIC(1)

NAME

gnatmetric - Ada metrics tool

SYNOPSIS

gnatmetric [options] {filename | -files filename} [ gcc_switches]

DESCRIPTION

gnatmetric takes a set of compilable Ada sources as input, computes for them various programming metrics and generates the output. Argument Ada sources may be provided as command line arguments, or you can place the names of the Ada sources to compute the metrics for into a textual file and to provide the name of this file as the parameter of -files option.
Documentation about the ASIS tools may be found in /usr/share/doc/asis-doc/ if the asis-doc package is installed.

OPTIONS

-v
verbose mode
-q
quiet mode
-dv
generate debug output
-dd
generate string to be used as input for progress indicator
-nocc
do not compute the McCabe Cyclomatic Complexity
-noec
do not compute the Essential Complexity
-nonl
do not compute maximal loop nesting level
-ne
do not consider exit statements as gotos when computing Essential Complexity
-nolocal
do not compute detailed metrics for local program units

Line metrics

When not specified explicitly, all line metrics are set on, otherwise only specified metrics are computed:
-la
the number of all lines
-lcode
the number of code lines
-lcomm
the number of comment lines
-leol
the number of code lines also containing comments
-lb
the number of blank lines

Element metrics

When not specified explicitly, all element metrics are set on, otherwise only specified metrics are computed:
-ed
the total number of declarations
-es
the total number of statements
-eps
the number of public subprograms in a compilation unit
-eas
the number of all the subprograms in a compilation unit
-ept
the number of public types in a compilation unit
-eat
the number of all the types in a compilation unit
-enu
the maximal program unit nesting level
-ec
the maximal construct nesting level

Output file control

-d dirname
put files with detailed metrics into dirname
-x
generate the XML output
-nt
do not generate the output in text form, implies '-x'
-o file-suffix
the suffix for the file to put the detailed metrics for a source file ( file-suffix should begin with a dot)
-og filename
the name of the file to put the global metrics info into (if not set, this info is sent to Stdout)
-ox filename
the name of the file to put the XML output into, implies '-x'
-sfn
use short source file name in the output

Input files

filename
the name of the Ada source file for which metrics should be computed. Wildcards are allowed.
-files filename
the name of the text file containing a list of Ada source files for which metrics should be computed.

GCC switches

gcc_switches
Passed to gnatgcc as "-cargs gcc_switches".
