Abstract:

IDA Memorandum Report M-454, Sources of Compiler Capability Information in Validation Summary Reports, documents the results of the Institute for Defense Analyses review of the Validation Summary Reports VSRs. It is intended for use by the Ada Joint Program Office AJPO staff concerned with providing guidance to the Department of Defense Program Managers on the use of VSRs as an information resource. The results of formal validation of Ada compilers are documented in VSRs, available through the National Technical Information Service NTIS to the public. The format and content of the VSR has been revised periodically to improve the presentation of data and to add substantive information concerning the testing procedures, configurations tested, and testing results. The VSR is reviewed as a source of information on the capability of compilers that would be useful to a prospective buyer and user of an Ada compiler.
