6.3 Set source search path

In this example, we show how to deal with files in more than one directory. We start with the same code as in No project files; create those files (with the errors present)

Create the directory Example_3, containing:

package Hello_Pkg is
   procedure Say_Hello;
end Hello_Pkg;


with Ada.Text_IO;
package Hello_Pkg is
   procedure Say_Hello
   is begin
      Ada.Text_IO.Put_Line ("Hello from hello_pkg.adb");
   end Say_Hello;
end Hello_Pkg;

These are the same files from example 1; hello_pkg.adb has an error on line 2.

In addition, create a directory Example_3/Other, containing these files:


with Hello_Pkg;
with Ada.Text_IO; use Ada.Text_IO;
procedure Hello_3
is begin
   Put_Line ("From hello_3");
end Hello_3;

There are no errors in this file.



Note that there must be no trailing spaces.

In buffer hello_3.adb, invoke ‘Ada | Project | Load...’, and select Example_3/Other/other.adp.

Then, again in hello_3.adb, invoke ‘Ada | Set main and Build’. You should get a *compilation* buffer containing something like (the directory paths will be different):

cd c:/Examples/Example_3/Other/
gnatmake -o hello_3 hello_3 -g -cargs -I.. -bargs  -largs
gcc -c -g -I.. hello_3.adb
gcc -c -I./ -g -I.. -I- C:\Examples\Example_3\hello_pkg.adb
hello_pkg.adb:2:08: keyword "body" expected here [see file name]
gnatmake: "C:\Examples\Example_3\hello_pkg.adb" compilation error

Compare the -cargs option to the compiler output in Set compiler options; this shows that other.adp is being used to set the compiler options.

Move to the error with C-x `. Ada mode searches the list of directories given by src_dir for the file mentioned in the compiler error message.

Fixing the error, linking and running the code proceed as in No project files.
