PRODUCT:    DEC ADA for Digital UNIX Systems Version 3.2

OP/SYS:     DEC OSF/1 Version 3.0 or later

SOURCE:     Digital Equipment Corporation


     ECO Kit Name:  ADAECO320
     ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit:  None
     ECO Kit Approximate Size:  5550080 Bytes

     System Reboot Necessary:  No


An ECO kit exists for DEC ADA for Digital UNIX Systems V3.2 on DEC OSF/1
Version 3.0 or later. This kit addresses the following problems: 

    o	Compiler SIGSEGV at pc: 0x 000000003051FB8C

	Compiler failed when compiling -g (debugging).

    o	Integer'image Gives Incorrect Data

	Bad data for parameter with concatenation.

    o	Incorrect Determination of Program Limits During Debugging

	Users were not able to set breakpoints or step to many
	valid lines of their ADA programs.

    o	Incorrect Scope of Loop Parameter

	When debugging an ADA program, identically named looped parameters
	in the same scope were undebuggable; they were identically defined
	in the same scope, so the debugger either picked one randomly (idbx),
	or reported an error (DECladebug).

    o	Problems debugging elaboration code Post-Digital UNIX V3.2

	Users not able to debug ADA elaboration object file,
	ald_mmmmmmmm_nnnnnnnnnn.o, which is a jacket around the main routine.
	Several symptoms resulting from this problem.
	Reference: DECladebug engineering.

    o	Ordering of Linker Libraries to ld from ald/amake

	Problems linking ADA programs non-shared.

	Several symptoms;

              /usr/ccs/lib/libc.a(_sigprocmsk.o): _sigprocmask: multiply defined
              ald: Error: Errors during link operation


             /usr/ccs/lib/libpthreads.a(cma_malloc.o): malloc: multiply defined
             /usr/ccs/lib/libpthreads.a(cma_malloc.o): free: multiply defined
             /usr/ccs/lib/libpthreads.a(cma_malloc.o): realloc: multiply defined
              Error: Undefined:

	Also potential problems with using Platinum; due to library changes
	outside of the ADA product.

   o	Long Linker Lines Broken Up and Handled Incorrectly

	Link of users program aborted if ADA ald command was sufficiently
	long to require division into smaller ld lines and the first
	subdivision contained all the object files in the elaboration queue.


  Install this kit with the setld utility:

	setld -l ADAECO320
  The ADABASE320 and ADAPAL320 subsets from the V3.2 kit must be previously
