-- This package contains functions for runtime operations on boolean vectors | |

package System.Vectors.Boolean_Operations is | |

pragma Pure (Boolean_Operations); | |

-- Although in general the boolean operations on arrays of booleans are | |

-- identical to operations on arrays of unsigned words of the same size, | |

-- for the "not" operator this is not the case as False is typically | |

-- represented by 0 and true by 1. | |

function "not" (Item : Vectors.Vector) return Vectors.Vector; | |

-- The three boolean operations "nand", "nor" and "nxor" are needed | |

-- for cases where the compiler moves boolean array operations into | |

-- the body of the loop that iterates over the array elements. | |

-- Note the following equivalences: | |

-- (not X) or (not Y) = not (X and Y) = Nand (X, Y) | |

-- (not X) and (not Y) = not (X or Y) = Nor (X, Y) | |

-- (not X) xor (not Y) = X xor Y | |

-- X xor (not Y) = not (X xor Y) = Nxor (X, Y) | |

function Nand (Left, Right : Boolean) return Boolean; | |

function Nor (Left, Right : Boolean) return Boolean; | |

function Nxor (Left, Right : Boolean) return Boolean; | |

function Nand (Left, Right : Vectors.Vector) return Vectors.Vector; | |

function Nor (Left, Right : Vectors.Vector) return Vectors.Vector; | |
