Randy Brukardt has developed the following program to survey existing Ada 95 compilers for their behavior on issues related to AI95-00085. Please run this program on any Ada 95 compilers that you have access to, on as many targets as possible as long as those targets support stream files. Please send the results to agent@ada-auth.org, along with your name, compiler name and version, and target information (including operating system version).
