package Debug_A is

   --  Note: the following subprograms are used in a stack like manner, with
   --  an exit call matching each entry call. This means that they can keep
   --  track of the current node being worked on, with the entry call setting
   --  a new value, by pushing the Node_Id value on a stack, and the exit call
   --  popping this value off. Atree.Current_Error_Node is set by both the
   --  entry and exit routines to point to the current node so that an abort
   --  message indicates the node involved as accurately as possible.

   procedure Debug_A_Entry (S : String; N : Node_Id);
   pragma Inline (Debug_A_Entry);
   --  Generates a message prefixed by a sequence of bars showing the nesting
   --  depth (depth increases by 1 for a Debug_A_Entry call and is decreased
   --  by the corresponding Debug_A_Exit call). Then the string is output
   --  (analyzing, expanding etc), followed by the node number and its kind.
   --  This output is generated only if the debug A flag is set. If the debug
   --  A flag is not set, then no output is generated. This call also sets the
   --  Node_Id value in Atree.Current_Error_Node in case a bomb occurs. This
   --  is done unconditionally, whether or not the debug A flag is set.

   procedure Debug_A_Exit (S : String; N : Node_Id; Comment : String);
   pragma Inline (Debug_A_Exit);
   --  Generates the corresponding termination message. The message is preceded
   --  by a sequence of bars, followed by the string S, the node number, and
   --  a trailing comment (e.g. " (already evaluated)"). This output is
   --  generated only if the debug A flag is set. If the debug A flag is not
   --  set, then no output is generated. This call also resets the value in
   --  Atree.Current_Error_Node to what it was before the corresponding call
   --  to Debug_A_Entry.
