This standard is part of the POSIX ® series of standards for applications and user inter-faces to
open systems. It defines the Ada language bindings as package specifications and accompanying textual
descriptions of the application program interface (API). This standard supports application portability at the
source code level through the binding between ISO 8652:1995 (Ada) and ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (IEEE Std
1003.1-1996) (POSIX) as amended by IEEE P1003.1g/D6.6. Terminology and general requirements, process
primitives, the process environment, files and directories, input and output primaries, device- and classspecific
functions, language-specific services for Ada, system databases, synchronization, memory
management, execution scheduling, clocks and timers, message passing, task management, the XTI and
socket detailed network inter-faces, event management, network support functions, and protocol-specific
mappings are covered. It also specifies behavior to support the binding that must be provided by the Ada.
