Pragma Compile_Time_Warning


     pragma Compile_Time_Warning
              (boolean_EXPRESSION, static_string_EXPRESSION);

Same as pragma Compile_Time_Error, except a warning is issued instead of an error message. Note that if this pragma is used in a package that is with'ed by a client, the client will get the warning even though it is issued by a with'ed package (normally warnings in with'ed units are suppressed, but this is a special exception to that rule).

One typical use is within a generic where compile time known characteristics of formal parameters are tested, and warnings given appropriately. Another use with a first parameter of True is to warn a client about use of a package, for example that it is not fully implemented.
