6.1.3 Compiling the Grading Tool and the Test Summary Tool
The Grading Tool and
the Test Summary Tool are provided in six Ada source files. Some of the
files are shared by both tools, so we present them as a single group.
The six files are:
The main subprogram for the grading tool; contains option processing
and test grading.
A package to store grading data; contains the code to read and display
all of the file information (events, test summaries, and manual grading
A package containing the special handling for the test summary program.
This package contains the data needed to handle optional units and tests
with severe syntax errors that cannot be processed by normal means.
The main subprogram for the test summary tool; contains lexical and syntactic
analysis for ACATS test files.
A package containing the data types that define an event trace.
A package containing the data types that define a test summary; it also
contains a routine to write an individual test summary record.
The source of the grading tools is written in Ada,
and only uses Ada 95 features other than the following:
Raise statements with messages;
Uses of the first could be replaced by calls to Ada.Exceptions.Raise_Exception;
and the latter could be replaced by similar routines. We did not do this
for readability and to avoid re-inventing the wheel.
The source code should be compilable by any Ada 95
or later compiler that supports the above three features; it certainly
should be compilable by any Ada 2012 compiler.
As each Ada implementation uses different commands
for compiling, we can only give the general direction that the six source
files need to be compiled and then bound into two execuable programs:
Grade (the Grading Tool) and Summary (the Test Summary Tool). Elsewhere
in this documentation we assume that this has been done.
