ABSTRACT

        TBD stands for "To Be Determined".  This package  is  intended
to  be used during design to aid in producing partial designs that are
expressed in valid  Ada.   It  also  may  be  used  advantageously  in
development  while  the  implementation  is  incomplete  or  in  rapid
prototyping.
        In particular, it supplies type definitions, range limits, and
default values which may be used to assist in  describing  unknown  or
partially  defined  types,  objects,  and  values.   In  addition,  it
supplies a place-holding procedure call.
        If  this  TBD_PACKAGE  is used, simple searches for the string
"TBD" may be used to find many places where the design is incomplete.
