ABSTRACT

  A set of tasking benchmarks were developed in
  conjunction with the paper "An Assessment of the
  Overhead Associated with Tasking Facilities
  and Task Paradigms in Ada" which appeared in the
  January,February 1987 Ada Letters.  These benchmarks
  were developed to measure the efficiency of the
  implementation of the Ada tasking model, and
  evaluate the additional cost of introducing
  intermediaries for the various tasking paradigms.
