package Ttypes is
-- Host/Target Dependencies --
-- It is vital to maintain a clear distinction between properties of
-- types on the host and types on the target, since in the general
-- case of a cross-compiler these will be different.
-- This package and its companion Ttypef provide definitions of values
-- that describe the properties of the target types. All instances of
-- target dependencies, including the definitions of such packages as
-- Standard and System depend directly or indirectly on the definitions
-- in the Ttypes and Ttypef packages.
-- In the source of the compiler, references to attributes such as
-- Integer'Size will give information regarding the host types (i.e.
-- the types within the compiler itself). Such references are therefore
-- almost always suspicious (it is hard for example to see that the
-- code in the compiler should even be using type Integer very much,
-- and certainly this code should not depend on the size of Integer).
-- On the other hand, it is perfectly reasonable for the compiler to
-- require access to the size of type Integer for the target machine,
-- e.g. in constructing the internal representation of package Standard.
-- For this purpose, instead of referencing the attribute Integer'Size,
-- a reference to Ttypes.Standard_Integer_Size will provide the needed
-- value for the target type.
-- Two approaches are used for handling target dependent values in the
-- standard library packages. Package Standard is handled specially,
-- being constructed internally (by package Stand). Target dependent
-- values needed in Stand are obtained by direct reference to Ttypes
-- and Ttypef.
-- For package System, the required constant values are obtained by
-- referencing appropriate attributes. Ada 95 already defines most of
-- the required attributes, and GNAT specific attributes have been
-- defined to cover the remaining cases (such as Storage_Unit). The
-- evaluation of these attributes obtains the required target dependent
-- values from Ttypes and Ttypef. The additional attributes that have
-- been added to GNAT (Address_Size, Storage_Unit, Word_Size, Max_Priority,
-- and Max_Interrupt_Priority) are for almost all purposes redundant with
-- respect to the corresponding references to System constants. For example
-- in a program, System.Address_Size and Standard'Address_Size yield the
-- same value. The critical use of the attribute is in writing the System
-- declaration of Address_Size which of course cannot refer to itself. By
-- this means we achieve complete target independence in the source code
-- of package System, i.e. there is only one copy of the source of System
-- for all targets.
-- Note that during compilation there are two versions of package System
-- around. The version that is directly WITH'ed by compiler packages
-- contains host-dependent definitions, which is what is needed in that
-- case (for example, System.Storage_Unit referenced in the source of the
-- compiler refers to the storage unit of the host, not the target. This
-- means that, like attribute references, any references to constants in
-- package System in the compiler code are suspicious, since it is strange
-- for the compiler to have such host dependencies. If the compiler needs
-- to access the target dependent values of such quantities as Storage_Unit
-- then it should reference the constants in this package (Ttypes), rather
-- than referencing System.Storage_Unit, or Standard'Storage_Unit, both of
-- which would yield the host value.
-- Target-Dependent Values for Types in Standard --
-- Note: GNAT always supplies all the following integer and float types,
-- but depending on the machine, some of the types may be identical. For
-- example, on some machines, Short_Float may be the same as Float, and
-- Long_Long_Float may be the same as Long_Float.

-- The Standard.Wide_Character type is special in the sense that

-- Unfortunately this makes the representation of Wide_Character
-- incompatible with the C wchar_t type.
-- ??? This is required by the RM or backward compatibility
-- Note: there is no specific control over the representation of
-- enumeration types. The convention used is that if an enumeration
-- type has fewer than 2**(Character'Size) elements, then the size
-- used is Character'Size, otherwise Integer'Size is used.
-- Similarly, the size of fixed-point types depends on the size of the
-- corresponding integer type, which is the smallest predefined integer
-- type capable of representing the required range of values.

-- ordering (otherwise we would end up with non-contiguous fields). It
-- is rare for the two to be different, but if they are, Bits_Big_Endian
-- is relevant only for the generation of instructions with bit numbers,
