ADA ADAAE04035 Ada V3.5A for OpenVMS Alpha ECO Summary
TITLE: ADA ADAAE04035 Ada V3.5A for OpenVMS Alpha ECO Summary
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
       kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
       RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe.  The
       resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
       used to install the ECO.

An ECO kit exists for Ada V3.5A on OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 through V7.3.  This
kit addresses the following problems:


  o	Compiler/ACS hang on Alpha EV6 systems.

  o	Corrected title page for "DEC Ada Technical Overview and Comparison
	on DIGITAL Platforms" manual.  Shipped online, in kit only.

  o	Threads created by a non-Ada subprogram could hang, due to unexpected
	scheduling policies after Ada runtime initialization.  Runtime edit
	important to replace Ada runtime shipped by Compaq Ada V3.5 on
	OpenVMS V7.2 systems.

  o	Ada runtime fatal internal error, or "bad block address" error on
	OpenVMS V7.2 systems.

  o	Runtime error causing TEXT_IO usage to hang.

  o	DEC Ada to GNAT Report Mapper V1.1 (improved messages).

  o	Compiler accvio in GEM_DB/GEM_DB_ABORT.

  o	Compiler accvio in DFLO\FACT_IS_KNOWN_LEQ for generic parameter with
	default initializer. 

  o	Predefined Ada Library package STARLET binding CHECK_PRIVILEGE has 

  o	Missing LIB$ bindings from Predefined Ada Library package LIB.

  o	Compiler debugging information problem when using fixed point as
	record component, whose size is specified in representation clause.

  o	Change listings and version idents to "Compaq Ada" (from "DEC Ada").

  o	Access violation at runtime using Predefined Ada Library binding

  o	Predefined Ada Library's extended motif bindings don't compile
	with /ANALYSIS compiler qualifier; gets compiler accvio.

  o	Issues with mixing Ada supplied CLD command file with previous 
	versions of Ada compiler.  /ARCHITECTURE and /TUNE qualifiers don't
	work correctly.

  o	Improvements and fixes to Compaq Ada to GNAT Report Mapper utility.

The above are in Ada V3.5A.

The below are in this ECO kit:

  o	Fix compiler access violation: OTS$DIV \OTS$REM_UL.

  o	Fix hang for programs calling Ada program via LIB$FIND_IMAGE_SYMBOL
	with Ada Runtime V7.2-15.  DECset component LSE can also hang with
	this runtime.

Compaq Ada V3.5A is required.
