ADA-OSF ADAECO320 DEC ADA for Digital UNIX Systems V3.2 ECO Summary

Copyright (c) Digital Equipment Corporation 1995. All rights reserved. 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DEC OSF/1 Version 3.0 or later SOURCE: Digital Equipment Corporation ECO INFORMATION: ECO Kit Name: ADAECO320 ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit: None ECO Kit Approximate Size: 5550080 Bytes System Reboot Necessary: No ECO KIT SUMMARY: An ECO kit exists for DEC ADA for Digital UNIX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; ld: /usr/ccs/lib/libc.a(_sigprocmsk.o): _sigprocmask: multiply defined ald: Error: Errors during link operation Or ld: /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: __Argv 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. INSTALLATION NOTES: Install this kit with the setld utility: setld -l ADAECO320 The ADABASE320 and ADAPAL320 subsets from the V3.2 kit must be previously installed.
