ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_147:  Ada/Operating System Interface (OSI) 

     This package provides tools to interface between Ada and an
operating system.  The package is modeled on the POSIX interface for
AIX but may be  implemented on other environments as well.  Functions
available include  interfaces to files and directories; access to
environment variables such as user login name and aliases or logicals;
and interfaces to spawn or execute  other processes.
