Abstract:

This Validation Summary Report describes the extent to which a specific Ada compiler conforms to the Ada Standard, ANSIMIL-STD-1815A. This report explains all technical terms used within it and thoroughly reports the results of testing. An Ada compiler must be implemented according to the Ada Standard, and any implementation-dependent features must conform to the requirements of the Ada Standard. The Ada Standard must be implemented in its entirety, and nothing can be implemented that is not in the Standard. Even though all validated Ada compilers conforms to the Ada Standard, it must be understood that some differences do exist between implementations. The Ada Standard permits some implementation dependencies -- for example, the maximum values of integer types. Other differences between compilers result from the characteristics of particular operating systems, hardware, or implementation strategies. All the dependencies observed during the process of testing this compiler are given in this report. The information in this report is derived from the test results produced during validation testing. The validation process includes submitting a suite of standardized tests, the ACVC, as inputs to an Ada compiler and evaluating the results. kr
