return Long_Long_Float;
-- This function scans the string starting at Str (Ptr.all) for a valid
-- real literal according to the syntax described in (RM 3.5(43)). The
-- substring scanned extends no further than Str (Max). There are three
-- cases for the return:
-- If a valid real is found after scanning past any initial spaces, then
-- Ptr.all is updated past the last character of the real (but trailing
-- spaces are not scanned out).
-- If no valid real is found, then Ptr.all points either to an initial
-- non-blank character, or to Max + 1 if the field is all spaces and the
-- exception Constraint_Error is raised.
-- If a syntactically valid real is scanned, but the value is out of
-- range, or, in the based case, the base value is out of range or there
-- is an out of range digit, then Ptr.all points past the real literal,
-- and Constraint_Error is raised.
-- Note: these rules correspond to the requirements for leaving the
-- pointer positioned in Text_Io.Get
-- Note: if Str is null, i.e. if Max is less than Ptr, then this is a
-- special case of an all-blank string, and Ptr is unchanged, and hence
-- is greater than Max as required in this case.
function Value_Real (Str : String) return Long_Long_Float;
-- Used in computing X'Value (Str) where X is a floating-point type or an
-- ordinary fixed-point type. Str is the string argument of the attribute.
-- Constraint_Error is raised if the string is malformed, or if the value
-- out of range of Long_Long_Float.
