-- This package provides low level primitives used to implement clock and
-- delays in non tasking applications, for LynxOS.
-- The choice of the real clock/delay implementation (depending on whether
-- tasking is involved or not) is done via soft links (see
-- NEVER add any dependency to tasking packages here

-- Max of half a year delay, needed to prevent exceptions for large delay
-- values. It seems unlikely that any test will notice this restriction,
-- except in the case of applications setting the clock at run time (see
-- s-tastim.adb). Also note that a larger value might cause problems (e.g
-- overflow, or more likely OS limitation in the primitives used). In the
-- case where half a year is too long (which occurs in high integrity mode
-- with 32-bit words, and possibly on some specific ports of GNAT),
-- Duration'Last is used instead.
Max_System_Delay : constant Duration := 2147483.0;
-- Note that Max_System_Delay is 2**31 / 1000 truncated.
-- LynxOS does not support delays as long as half a year, only the
-- number of seconds noted in Max_System_Delay, which is used to split
-- delays into chunks no larger than what the system can handle. This
-- maximum was found by experiment and is not documented.

procedure Timed_Delay (Time : Duration; Mode : Integer);
-- Implements the semantics of the delay statement when no tasking is used
-- in the application.
-- Mode is one of the three values above
-- Time is a relative or absolute duration value, depending on Mode.
-- Note that currently Ada.Real_Time always uses the tasking run time,
-- so this procedure should never be called with Mode set to Absolute_RT.
-- This may change in future or bare board implementations.
