ABSTRACT

Ada Software Repository (ASR) copy in the Public Ada Library (PAL)
==================================================================

The PAL directory tree languages/ada/ASR contains a copy of the
now-frozen Ada Software Repository (ASR). This copy is very close to the
ASR at the time of its shutdown (June 1993) except that certain sections
have been removed when they duplicate information that is actively
maintained elsewhere in the PAL.  Those removed sections still have
directories, but they contain README files that point to the locations
in the PAL where the current material can be found. The directories in
the ASR tree whose contents have been removed and replaced with README
files are:
   ada9x
   courseware
   csparts
   piwg

This copy of the ASR contains approximately 80M bytes of material.

The contents of the ASR tree are not fully documented in the PAL
Catalog.  Instead, this is the only entry in the PAL Catalog on the ASR,
and the ASR has its own catalog, the ASR Master Index. The ASR Master
Index is located in the directory languages/ada/asr/mindex. Like the PAL
Catalog, the ASR Master Index contains two tables of contents, an
introductory chapter (explaining topics such as the Master Index itself
and the review codes), descriptions of each item in the ASR, and an
index.  The ASR Master Index is a collection of ASCII text files. The
ASR Master Index was automatically built from item description (ID)
files (Software Item Description, or SID, and Text Item Description, or
TID, files).  These ID files are convenient in that they provide the raw
data in a standardized text format so that automated tools can extract
information about the ASR.  The ID files for the ASR are located in the
directory languages/ada/asr/id_files.

The directory names of the ASR copy in the PAL have been changed from
the original names in order to make the directory names compliant to the
ISO-9660 standard.  This facilitates copying the PAL onto CDROM. The ASR
Master Index references the original directory names, so the user must
make the translation to the names under the PAL. The directory name
changes are given in the table below.  In the ASR, each directory name
was of the form PD:; in the PAL, each directory
name is of the form languages/ada/asr/new_dir_name or
languages/ada/asr/new_dir_name.

The top level of the ASR tree contains a number of data files that
may be useful to the user of the ASR.  These files are:

ada.crc    Cyclic Redundancy Check values of all files in the ASR tree
ada.db     Machine-readable database of all files in the ASR tree
             (can be read by Lotus 1-2-3, dBase IV, etc)
ada.hdr    Header file telling field names and widths of ada.db fields
ada.rpt    Report of files in the ASR
ada.snp    Snapshot of the ASR usage
ada.tax    Taxonomy of the items in the ASR
adaf.tax   Taxonomy of the items in the ASR with associated ID file names
ada.tim    Files in the ASR ordered by time (most recently-added first)
