Abstract

This report, the first in a series, presents an overview of the aspects of the Ada language relating to representation clauses and implementation-dependent features. Particular emphasis is given to the use of Ada for application to packed data structures. This report is in part tutorial, and several examples from real-time, mission- critical systems are discussed in detail. A brief discussion of design guidelines for the use of representation clauses and implementation-dependent features is included.
