ABSTRACT

The NASA/GFSC (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Standard Ada
Pretty Printer is a tool developed by the Data Systems Technology
Division of the Mission Operations and Data Systems Directorate,
NASA/GFSC.  This tool implements many of the directives in the
Proposed MIL-HDBK-1804, "Ada Style Guide."

This project began in early 1986 as an Ada learning project in the
Simulations Operations Control Center (SOC) at Goddard Space Flight
Center.  Through the process of writing a parse table generator and
Ada syntax file, the tool's author was able to learn many of the
intricacies of Ada he might have otherwise missed in years of
development projects.

The standards implemented by the tool are directly taken from the
Ada Style Guide (Software Engineering Laboratory Series SEL-87-002)
produced by the Ada Standards Committee of the Ada Users Group at
NASA/GFSC.  This guide is the basis of the proposed MIL-HDBK-1804.

The files associated with this tool include:
  NAPPCO.SRC  -- compilation scripts (compilation order)
  NAPPDOC.SRC -- documentation
  NAPPDAT.SRC -- data files used to generate parse tables
  NAPPTBL.SRC -- software used to generate parse tables
  NAPPSRC.SRC -- source code
All files are PAGER files.  Only NAPPCO and NAPPSRC are required
to compile the tool using internal parse tables.  If your Ada
compiler does not have the capacity to compile the large parse
tables required, use NAPPDAT and NAPPTBL to make the parse tables
external to the program.

A machine-readable copy of the MIL-HDBK-1804 is available in the
PMH1804.* files.  The file NAPP.ZIP in the MSDOS archives contains
a readme file and a self-extracting EXE file which extracts into
all the files needed to run the pretty printer on an IBM PC or
clone.  No source is in NAPP.ZIP; source is only in the ASR.
NAPP.ZIP contains executables which are ready to run on the PC.
