Abstract : This Validation Summary Report summarizes the results and conclusions of validation testing performed on the Tandem Ada Compiler, Release T9270COO, using Version 1.8 of the Ada Compiler Validation Capability (ACVC). The Tandem Ada Compiler is hosted on a Tandem NonStop VLX operating under Guardian 980, /version COO. Programs processed by this compiler may be executed on a Tandem NonStop VLX operating under GUARDIAN 90, Version COO. On-site testing was performed 15 May 1987 through 20 May 1987 at Tandem Computers, Cupertino CA, under the direction of the Ada Validation Facility, according to Ada Validation Organization policies and procedures. The AVF identified 2222 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 The 19 tests withdrawn at the time of validation testing, as well as the 158 executable tests that make use of floating-point precision exceeding that supported by the implementation, were not processed. After the 2222 tests were processed, results for Class A, C, D, and 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 38 of the processed tests determined to be inapplicable. The remaining 2184 tests were passed.
