   -- Host/Target Dependencies --

   --  It is vital to maintain a clear distinction between properties of
   --  types on the host and types on the target, since in the general
   --  case of a cross-compiler these will be different.

   --  This package and its companion Ttypef provide definitions of values
   --  that describe the properties of the target types. All instances of
   --  target dependencies, including the definitions of such packages as
   --  Standard and System depend directly or indirectly on the definitions
   --  in the Ttypes and Ttypef packages.

   --  In the source of the compiler, references to attributes such as
   --  Integer'Size will give information regarding the host types (i.e.
   --  the types within the compiler itself). Such references are therefore
   --  almost always suspicious (it is hard for example to see that the
   --  code in the compiler should even be using type Integer very much,
   --  and certainly this code should not depend on the size of Integer).

   --  On the other hand, it is perfectly reasonable for the compiler to
   --  require access to the size of type Integer for the target machine,
   --  e.g. in constructing the internal representation of package Standard.
   --  For this purpose, instead of referencing the attribute Integer'Size,
   --  a reference to Ttypes.Standard_Integer_Size will provide the needed
   --  value for the target type.

   --  Two approaches are used for handling target dependent values in the
   --  standard library packages. Package Standard is handled specially,
   --  being constructed internally (by package Stand). Target dependent
   --  values needed in Stand are obtained by direct reference to Ttypes
   --  and Ttypef.

   --  For package System, the required constant values are obtained by
   --  referencing appropriate attributes. Ada 95 already defines most of
   --  the required attributes, and GNAT specific attributes have been
   --  defined to cover the remaining cases (such as Storage_Unit). The
   --  evaluation of these attributes obtains the required target dependent
   --  values from Ttypes and Ttypef. The additional attributes that have
   --  been added to GNAT (Address_Size, Storage_Unit, Word_Size, Max_Priority,
   --  and Max_Interrupt_Priority) are for almost all purposes redundant with
   --  respect to the corresponding references to System constants. For example
   --  in a program, System.Address_Size and Standard'Address_Size yield the
   --  same value. The critical use of the attribute is in writing the System
   --  declaration of Address_Size which of course cannot refer to itself. By
   --  this means we achieve complete target independence in the source code
   --  of package System, i.e. there is only one copy of the source of System
   --  for all targets.

   --  Note that during compilation there are two versions of package System
   --  around. The version that is directly WITH'ed by compiler packages
   --  contains host-dependent definitions, which is what is needed in that
   --  case (for example, System.Storage_Unit referenced in the source of the
   --  compiler refers to the storage unit of the host, not the target. This
   --  means that, like attribute references, any references to constants in
   --  package System in the compiler code are suspicious, since it is strange
   --  for the compiler to have such host dependencies. If the compiler needs
   --  to access the target dependent values of such quantities as Storage_Unit
   --  then it should reference the constants in this package (Ttypes), rather
   --  than referencing System.Storage_Unit, or Standard'Storage_Unit, both of
   --  which would yield the host value.

   -- Target-Dependent Values for Types in Standard --

   --  Note: GNAT always supplies all the following integer and float types,
   --  but depending on the machine, some of the types may be identical. For
   --  example, on some machines, Short_Float may be the same as Float, and
   --  Long_Long_Float may be the same as Long_Float.

   --  enumeration types. The convention used is that if an enumeration
   --  type has fewer than 2**(Character'Size) elements, then the size
   --  used is Character'Size, otherwise Integer'Size is used.

   --  Similarly, the size of fixed-point types depends on the size of the

   --  Important note: for Ada purposes, the important setting is the bytes
   --  endianness (Bytes_Big_Endian), not the bits value (Bits_Big_Endian).
   --  This is because Ada bit addressing must be compatible with the byte
   --  ordering (otherwise we would end up with non-contiguous fields). It
   --  is rare for the two to be different, but if they are, Bits_Big_Endian
   --  is relevant only for the generation of instructions with bit numbers,
   --  and thus relevant only to the back end. Note that this is a variable
   --  rather than a constant, since it can be modified (flipped) by -gnatd8.

   Target_Strict_Alignment : Boolean := Get_Strict_Alignment /= 0;
