Annex B


Interface to Other Languages

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

Much of the functionality in this Annex is new to Ada 95. 

Wording Changes from Ada 83

This Annex contains what used to be RM83-13.8.
