ABSTRACT

ASENTO (Ada Software ENgineering TOols) consists of Ada Yacc (YACCA),
which is an Ada implementation of the well-know Unix tool yacc
(naturally, output language is Ada), and Adaface, an interface
generator for Ada programs and packages.
 
As the function of yacc is well-known, YACCA is not specified in more
detail here (there is documentation in the tar package, in
subdirectory yacca/doc). Document files named x.me.tbl.pic are
printed by command pic x.me.tbl.pic | tbl | troff -me | lpr-to-your-printer.
 
Adaface is an interpreter of a subset of Ada (procedures, functions,
overloading etc., but no tasking, generics etc.). By the generator, a
connection package of this interpreter and one's application is made.
This allows the interpreter to call application's procedures,
functions (including operators), introduce variables of application
types, and to catch the exceptions of the application.  Shortly, the
interpreter can be used in testing, providing interfaces using Ada
syntax etc.
 
All the components of the software are on Copyright of Tampere
University of Technology. They all public domain as long as copyright
notices are not omitted.  Copiers of the package are requested to
send a notice to address hmj@cs.tut.fi, if they decide to use it (just
to find out the amount of interest; if too low, the software will be
removed from the ftp site).
