Abstract : This report describes the extent to which a specific Ada compiler conforms to the Ada Standard and explains all technical terms used within it and thoroughly reports the results of testing this compiler using the Ada Compiler Validation Capability. 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 entire Ada Standard must be implemented, and nothing can be implemented that is not in the Standard. Even though all validated Ada compilers conform to the Ada Standard, it must be understood that some difference do exist between implementations. The Ada Standard permits some implementation dependencies--for example, the maximum length of identifiers or the minimum values of integer types. Other difference between compilers result from limitations imposed on a compiler by the operating systems and by the hardware. All of the dependencies demonstrated during the process of testing this compiler are given in the report. The information in this report is derived from the test results produced during validation testing.
