Ada 2012 Rationale: The Language, The Standard Libraries by John Barnes

By John Barnes

Ada 2012 is the newest model of the overseas commonplace for the programming language Ada. it really is certain ISO/IEC 8652:2012 (E) and is a brand new variation exchanging the 2005 model. the first ambitions for the hot model have been to additional increase its services quite in these parts the place its reliability and predictability are of serious price. Many vital new positive factors were integrated equivalent to these defining dynamic contracts and for dealing with multiprocessors and are built-in in the current language framework in a sublime and coherent demeanour. The Ada 2012 reason describes not just the adjustments from Ada 2005 but additionally the cause of the alterations. It begins with an advent offering a common assessment and this can be by means of seven chapters concentrating on contracts and facets; prolonged expressions; constitution and visibility; tasking and genuine time; iterators and swimming pools; predefined library and boxes. The booklet concludes with an epilogue mostly desirous about compatibility issues.

Sample text

In the case of a procedure without a distinct specification, the aspect specification goes in the procedure body before is thus procedure Do_It( ... ) with Inline is ... begin ... end Do_It; This arrangement is because the aspect specification is very much part of the specification of the subprogram. This will be familiar to users of SPARK where we might have procedure Do_It( ... ) --# global in out Stuff; is ... If a subprogram has a distinct specification then we cannot give a language-defined aspect specification on the body; this avoids problems of conformance.

It seems clear from this brief check that indeed Ada 2012 does meet the objectives set for it. 33 2 Contracts and Aspects This chapter describes the mechanisms for including contracts in Ada 2012. The main feature is that preconditions and postconditions can be given for subprograms. In addition, invariants can be given for types and predicates can be given for subtypes. In attempting to find a satisfactory way of adding these features it was found expedient to introduce the concept of an aspect specification for describing properties of entities in general.

And then to make most of the pragmas obsolete. Before looking at the old pragmas concerned in detail, two general points are worth noting. The usual linear elaboration rules do not apply to the expression in an aspect specification. It is essentially sorted out at the freezing point of the entity to which the aspect applies. The reason for this was illustrated by an example in the Introduction which was 36 Co nt ract s an d as pec t s type Stack is private with Type_Invariant => Is_Unduplicated(Stack); The problem here is that the function Is_Unduplicated cannot be declared before that of the type Stack and yet it is needed in the aspect specification of the declaration of Stack.
