[flang][driver] Add support for the "-init-only" option

Authored by stuartellis on May 20 2021, 8:38 AM.



Adding the -init-only option and corresponding frontend action to
generate a diagnostic.

-init-only vs -test-io:
-init-only ignores the input (it never calls the prescanner)
-test-io is similar to -init-only, but does read and print the input
without calling the prescanner.

This patch also adds a Driver test to check this action.

Hi @stuartellis ,

Thank you for preparing this! This looks good to me, but I would appreciate a comment somewhere (e.g. in the commit message) comparing -init-only and -test-io. Essentially, both options are for testing purposes only. IMHO, we should only require one of them (I would be in favor of -init-only), but it's a bit tricky with input files being managed by the prescanner rather than the driver. So for the time being I would keep both, but just make it clear that:

  • -init-only ignores the input (because it never calls the prescanner)
  • -test-io is similar to -init-only, but does read and print the input without calling the prescanner.

Please let me know if any of this is unclear!


[nit] Remove empty line


[Nit] Whenever possible, we've been adopting names from Clang (hopefully, this way it will be easier for developers to switch between the drivers). So, in this case, it would be InitOnly rather than InitializationOnly:
