Abstract : This Validation Summary Report (VSR) summarizes the results and conclusions of validation testing performed on the SD Ada-Plus VAX/VMS x MC68020, 2B.00, using Version 1.8 of the Ada Compiler Validation Capability (ACVC). The SD Ada-Plus VAX/VMS x MC68020 is hosted on a VAX 8600 operating under VMS, 4.2. Programs processed by this compiler may be executed on a Motorola MC68020. On-site testing was performed 28 November 1986 through 1 December 1986 at Systems Designers plc, Camberley, under the direction of The National Computing Centre Ltd according to Ada Validation Organization policies and procedures. The AVF identified 2102 of the 2399 tests in ACVC Version 1.8 to be processed during on-site testing of the compiler. The 19 tests withdrawn at the time of validation testing, as well as the 278 executable tests that make use of floating-point precision exceeding that supported by the implementation were not processed. After the 2102 tests were processed, results for Class A, C, D, or E tests were examined for correct execution. Compilation listings for Class B tests were analyzed for correct diagnosis of syntax and semantic errors. Compilation and link results of Class L tests were analyzed for correct detection of errors. There were 184 of the processed tests determined to be inapplicable; The remaining 1918 tests were passed.
