Overview

Functional Description

This is a package that will allow you to read or write to a file as a sequence of bits, and provides some support functions to pair these bits back together into bytes for processing as required.

The procedures within this package are modelled on the procedures in Sequential_IO, and so have the same definitions and exceptions.

Section A.8.2 of the Ada RM should be referred to for further information.

Restrictions

ASCL is implemented to work with GNAT, the GNU Ada compiler.
