Ada Programming/Pragmas/Convention


Ada Lovelace 1838.jpg

SummaryEdit

The pragma Convention directs the compiler to represent a type or subprogram using a foreign language convention.

The set of supported foreign languages depends on the compiler implementation. Typically C, C++, COBOL, and Fortran are supported.

ExampleEdit

type My_C_Type is record [...];
-- Ada will represent My_C_Type as a C-style structure.
pragma Convention (C, My_C_Type);
