(** Manage all warning of compiler. *)
(** {6 Defined types}*)
(** Type of a warning.*)
type wclass
Warning classes (wclass values) forms a hierarchy.
You can manipule both node and leaves of this hierarchy.
Each class describe a sub-set of warning.
You can then choose the default properties of all warnings in the class when creating it:
and change this behaviour later
and you can use the class when emitting so that it follows the class common properties
(** {6 Creating of warning classes} *)
Create a new class of warning
parent : specify the ancestor class of the new class.
If you do not provide a parent value, the warning should be loaded for beeing part of the
warning table.
public : specify is the warning class is public or not
(i.e. if not public the user has no control on it,
and the message is an internal error (in error mode) or skipped )
doc : is the message associate to the command line option
err : behaviour of a warning of the class (true => error, false => warning)
enable : true => warning class enable, false => disable
val create : ?parent:wclass -> ?public:bool -> name:string -> doc:string -> err:bool -> enable:bool -> unit -> wclass
(** {6 Regrouping Warnings} *)
(** Imperatives Set of wclasses *)
module Set :
type t
(** Create a new empty set *)
val create : unit -> t
Add a warning class and alls its children into the set.
Beware, you should add the parent warning given an hieararchy.
You cannot add a child, or a sub-branch alone, without adding the parent.
val add : t -> wclass -> unit
val add_all : t -> wclass list -> unit
[Set.add_set t t'] add in [t] all wclass of [t'].
Usefull for regrouping several warnings for a binary.
val add_set : t -> t -> unit
Create a new warning set and initialize it with the given list
of warning classes
val create_from_list : wclass list -> t
(** {6 Loading Warnings} *)
Load all wclass of a set into the global table. Any not loaded wclass is ignored,
the functions [is_warn] and [is_warn_error] will return always [false].
When you load a wclass, the load also all the children of the wclass
val load : wclass -> unit
val load_set : Set.t -> unit
(** {6 Set properties of warning classes}*)
(** Set the error on warning. If is set to true, warning has same
behavior that an error.*)
val set_warn_error : wclass -> bool -> unit
(** Set print on warning. If is set to true warning is printed
else is not printed. *)
val set_warn : wclass -> bool -> unit
(** {6 Get properties of warning classes}*)
If the wclass is not loaded, these functions returns always [false].
val is_warn_error : wclass -> bool
val is_warn : wclass -> bool
(** returns the full name of the warning,
as it is used by the Arg.options.
In the hierarchy, warning are separated
with dots. except for the root node which
does not appear in any name *)
val get_name : wclass -> string
val get_doc : wclass -> string
(** {6 Iterators}*)
val fold : ('acc -> string list -> wclass -> 'acc) -> 'acc -> 'acc
Fold on all the warnings loaded in the global table.
@param f takes:
- the accumulator
- the path to the current warning class
- the current warning class
The warning class can be used to access other information
of the warning class like the documentation string
(** {6 Options} *)
(** Provides a specification list for parse line command. *)
module Arg : sig
(** The specification list of options for [PassHandler]. Define :
- --warn
- --no-warn
- --warn-error
- --no-warn-error
- --warn-help
The unit is there so that the warning class of this module have time
to be loaded and registered before returning the options list
val options : (Base.Arg.key * Base.Arg.spec * Base.Arg.doc) list
(** {6 Warning classes} *)
val get_from_path : string list -> wclass option
Get a class from a name, searching in loaded wclass.
@param path The path in the warning hierarchy
Note that [\[\]] is a valid path that designates all the warnings
@raise Invalid_argument if the path doesn't exist
val root_warning : wclass
(* Define a parent in each part, use prefix for names hierarchy *)
(** {6 BSL Warnings} *)
(** The root of all bsl related warnings *)
val bsl : wclass
(** Warnings related to backend restriction *)
val bsl_backend_restriction : wclass
(** Warnings related to loading (essentially, plugins) *)
val bsl_loading : wclass
(** Warnings related to registering bypass *)
val bsl_projection : wclass
(** Warnings related to registering bypass *)
val bsl_register : wclass
(** Warnings related to type checking *)
val bsl_type_checking : wclass
(** Unknown bypass during compilation (not supported in every mode) *)
val bsl_unknown_bypass : wclass
(** {6 Conditions Warnings} *)
Hierarchical warnings, alphabetical ordering,
and keep coherent with names from $(Lang)Check modules.
[QmlCheck], [OpaCheck], [OcamlCheck], [JsCheck], etc..
In modules [LangCheck], checks are in module, there,
everything is at top level with underscore.
Example :
[cond_annot_unicity], [cond_bypass_expanded]
represents the wclass used in :
(** Used for pre/post condition on passes. *)
val cond : wclass
(** {6 Dbgen Warnings} *)
val dbgen : wclass
val dbgen_schema : wclass
val dbgen_mongo : wclass
(** {6 Explicit instantiation} *)
(** The root of all warnings related to explicit instantiation. *)
val ei : wclass
(** Explicit instantiation generalize a non-functionnal value. (A
non-functionnal value is transformed on functional value.) *)
val ei_generalize : wclass
(** {6 Patterns} *)
(** Warn suspicious patterns *)
val pattern : wclass
(** {6 PassHandler Warnings} *)
(** Root of pass system warnings. *)
val phandler : wclass
(** Warn if the pass system is not consistent. *)
val phandler_consistency : wclass
(** {6 Common warnings}
Warnings that can be raise by any compiler passes
(** Root of common warnings *)
val warn : wclass
(** Use it when an optimization level is wrong*)
val warn_olevel : wclass
