Raising the stack limit (was: segfault with large-ish array with GNAT)
Jerry wrote: ulimit allows querying the hard limit of stack space ulimit -Hs which on OS X reports 65532 = 2^16 -4 kilobytes, about 67 MB. The user via ulimit can set the stack up to that size but not higher: ulimit -s 65532 The default soft limit on OS X is 8192 kB, found by ulimit -s I... 7 May 2010 18:56
Record aggregates assignments and the black-box and else
Hi Ada novellers, I've just had a quick check at the RM, to review what is the exact meaning of the black-box in aggregates assignment which are not initialization. I was to check if the black-box in this context (all but initialization), stands for the actual value or the default value defined in the rec... 10 May 2010 15:25

Why is not Stream_Access defined Ada.Streams ?
Hi all and Hi others as well, My dirty stuff of the day : why is Stream_Access not defined once a time in Ada.Streams and is instead defined elsewhere multiple times, like in Ada.Streams.Stream_IO, Ada.Text_IO.Text_Streams, Ada.Wide_Text_IO.Text_Streams and Ada.Wide_Wide_Text_IO.Text_Streams ? Isn't it f... 6 May 2010 23:08
for S'Image use Func??
I have tried to google for this and have not yet found a suitable answer, so I'll troll, er, poll for an answer here.. Is there the ability to substitute your own S'Image function? For example, a basic interpreter might define: type LNumber_Type is range 0..99_999; Can I declare.. for LNumber_Type'Ima... 21 May 2010 02:59
Question about default discriminants and mutable objects.
Hopefully I can ask this question clearly... I understand that an instance of a type with default discriminants can be mutated (here I mean have its discriminant changed) via assignment. It seems like the most effective way for a compiler to support that ability is to always allocate enough memory for the object ... 7 May 2010 08:54

Wikipedia article about volatile variables
Was surprised not to find a reference to Ada's pragma here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volatile_variable I'm not specialist enough to make a meaningful contribution there. Perhaps someone ?
