  • Brent Hayhoe, Kevin Jennings, Farrell Ostler, Patrick Lehmann, Peter Flake, Rob Gaddi, Ryan Hinton


Meeting Discussion

  • LCS Review
  • Discussed LCS: 18 + 18b vs. 18c vs attributes of 72a
  • AI: All vote on LCS: 18 + 18b vs. 18c vs attributes of 72a. Keep in mind that they are mutually exclusive.
  • Discussed non-attribute part of 72a vs. 'actual of 60
    • 72a asks that for new parameters that apply to scalar objects in a subprogram, use actual parameter as the default type information rather than the formal. Note that the array attributes use the formal if it is present and only use the actual if the formal is unconstrained.
    • 60 instead creates a 'actual attribute that allows access to the type information on the actual parameter.
  • Action Item: Patrick proposal 60 on 'actual
  • WRT, predefined attributes, what is their scope/precedence with respect to other language objects such as local signal declarations and items declared in a package?
    • Are they implicitly declared or are they syntax items?
    • 6.7 refers to clause 16, -- probably clarified in section 14 elaboration.
    • Ask Tristan
