Annex B


Interface to Other Languages

   {interface to other languages} {language (interface to non-Ada)} {mixed-language programs} This Annex describes features for writing mixed-language programs. General interface support is presented first; then specific support for C, COBOL, and Fortran is defined, in terms of language interface packages for each of these languages.
Ramification: This Annex is not a ``Specialized Needs'' annex. Every implementation must support all non-optional features defined here (mainly the package Interfaces).

Language Design Principles

Ada should have strong support for mixed-language programming.

Extensions to Ada 83
