Abstract:

The purpose of this Validation Summary Report is to present the results and conclusions of performing standardized tests on the SofTech Ada86 compiler, Version 1.21. On-site testing was performed by the Federal Software Management Support Center FSMSC--an Ada Validation Facility--in accordance with current Ada Validation Office policies and procedures, on 1-8 November, 1985 at SofTech, Inc. in Waltham, MA. The suite of tests known as the Ada Compiler Validation Capability ACVC, Version 1.6, was used. The ACVC suite of tests is used to validate conformance of the compiler to ANSIMIL-STD-1815A Ada. This standard is described in the ANSI Ada Reference Manual, January 1983. Not all tests in the ACVC test suite are applicable to this specific implementation. Also, known test errors in Version 1.6 are present in some tests these tests were withdrawn. The purpose of the testing is to ensure that the compiler properly implements legal language constructs and that it identifies, rejects from processing, and labels illegal constructs. Author
