Basis of Classification --

Completeness                                FAIL
Independence from External Libraries        FAIL
Independence from a Specific Ada Compiler   FAIL

Explanations for failures --
System is NOT Complete
Parent units or subunits are missing
or the sources of some exceptions are not identified
System withs non-standard library units that are not provided
System contains compiler-specific pragmas or uses Machine_Code

ELSA reports that it compiled successfully except for the missing
library units, but there is some question about where the missing
subunit is located.

ABSTRACT

  The code for the X Library is intended to be "portable".  
This means that we make every attempt to isolate system, 
machine, and compiler dependencies.  At the same time we 
would like to have a single set of Ada source files.  This
implies that we would like to have a tool that provides us 
with some type of conditional compilation that goes beyond 
whatever constant-expression evaluation or dead-code 
elimination that might be provided by a compiler.  We need 
a way to write code that will not be "seen" by compilers 
that cannot (or will not) accept it.  The Ada_Parm program 
provides that functionality.
  
  Ada_Parm works with Ada comments.  For example, if you 
were preparing to compile the X Library for compilation on 
an R1000, then Ada_Parm would "comment out" any code that 
was targeted for some other computer and would "uncomment" 
(if necessary) any code that was specific to or required 
by the R1000 computer.
