Ada Decimal Arithmetic and Representations (ADAR)
----------------------------------------------------------
This is the source code for Ada Decimal Arithmetic and
Representations (ADAR), Versions 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0, which
is part of the binding project of the Ada Joint Program
Office's Ada Technology Insertion Program (ATIP). The
ADAR packages were developed to provide a common approach
for decimal arithmetic and Ada 83. The ADAR package set
consists of two related facilities for decimal arithmetic,
one based on discriminant records, and the other on generics,
to provide decimal computation and interoperable representations
of decimal quantities.
The ADAR packages include support for decimal data with up to
18 digits of precision, arithmetic operations with programmer
control over rounding versus truncation, conversions to and
from common external representations, and formatted output of
decimal values based on COBOL's "picture" clauses.
