The next problem concerns arrays that are constant for the purpose of the program but whose elements could vary from one situation to the next. 3 Constant Array Declarations 43 Problem B: A Baud Rate Table for a Message-Switch Program PROBLEM STATEMENT A message switch contains a table of possible transmission line baud rates in ascending order. The declaration occurs in the visible part of a package named Transmission-LinePackage, which is referenced by many other packages. It is reasonable to expect that the message-switch system will be modified in the future to accommodate new baud rates.

Z' I 'a'.. 'z' => True, others => False) can be used in this way. Otherwise, if we want to provide this capability, we must implement a function like the following: function Element-Range (Low, High: Element-Type) return Set-Type is Result: Set-Type := (Element-Type => False); begin -- Element-Range for E in Low.. ElementRange('A'.. Element _Range ('a'.. ) It might also be useful for Set-Package to provide a facility for iterating over the elements of a set. 2 Implementation of Set Types type Digit-Type is range 0 ..

If XXX is a word describing the kind of object represented by the record, then XXXType is a natural name for the enumeration type: each enumeration value stands for a different "type" of XXX. But XXX-Type is just the name that the conventions would use for the data type whose values are XXXs, the record type! For example, the package HistoryOps, from the message-switch program, includes the declarations shown in Figure 1-2(a). Under the suffix conventions, the 16 1 Naming Conventions name History-Entry should be changed to HistoryEntryType, but this will lead to confusion with the name Entry-Type, which has the same underlying meaning.
