function Scan_Raw_Unsigned
(Str : String;
Ptr : not null access Integer;
Max : Integer) return Uns;
-- This function scans the string starting at Str (Ptr.all) for a valid
-- integer according to the syntax described in (RM 3.5(43)). The substring
-- scanned extends no further than Str (Max). Note: this does not scan
-- leading or trailing blanks, nor leading sign.
-- There are three cases for the return:
-- If a valid integer is found, then Ptr.all is updated past the last
-- character of the integer.
-- If no valid integer is found, then Ptr.all points either to an initial
-- non-digit character, or to Max + 1 if the field is all spaces and the
-- exception Constraint_Error is raised.
-- If a syntactically valid integer 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 integer, and
-- Constraint_Error is raised.
-- Note: these rules correspond to the requirements for leaving the pointer
-- positioned in Text_IO.Get. Note that the rules as stated in the RM would
-- seem to imply that for a case like:
-- 8#12345670009#
-- the pointer should be left at the first # having scanned out the longest
-- valid integer literal (8), but in fact in this case the pointer points
-- past the final # and Constraint_Error is raised. This is the behavior
-- expected for Text_IO and enforced by the ACATS tests.
-- If a based literal is malformed in that a character other than a valid
-- hexadecimal digit is encountered during scanning out the digits after
-- the # (this includes the case of using the wrong terminator, : instead
-- of # or vice versa) there are two cases. If all the digits before the
-- non-digit are in range of the base, as in
-- 8#100x00#
-- 8#100:
-- then in this case, the "base" value before the initial # is returned as
-- the result, and the pointer points to the initial # character on return.
-- If an out of range digit has been detected before the invalid character,
-- as in:
-- 8#900x00#
-- 8#900:
-- then the pointer is also left at the initial # character, but constraint
-- error is raised reflecting the encounter of an out of range digit.
-- Finally if we have an unterminated fixed-point constant where the final
-- # or : character is missing, Constraint_Error is raised and the pointer
-- is left pointing past the last digit, as in:
-- 8#22
-- This string results in a Constraint_Error with the pointer pointing
-- past the second 2.
-- Note: if Str is empty, 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.
-- Note: this routine should not be called with Str'Last = Positive'Last.
-- If this occurs Program_Error is raised with a message noting that this
-- case is not supported. Most such cases are eliminated by the caller.

(Str : String;
Ptr : not null access Integer;

-- Same as Scan_Raw_Unsigned, except scans optional leading
-- blanks, and an optional leading plus sign.
-- Note: if a minus sign is present, Constraint_Error will be raised.
-- Note: trailing blanks are not scanned.
function Value_Unsigned
(Str : String) return Uns;
-- Used in computing X'Value (Str) where X is a modular integer type whose
-- modulus does not exceed the range of System.Unsigned_Types.Unsigned. Str
-- is the string argument of the attribute. Constraint_Error is raised if
-- the string is malformed, or if the value is out of range.
