A.18.24 The Generic Package Containers.Bounded_Ordered_Sets
The language-defined generic package Containers.Bounded_Ordered_Sets
provides a private type Set and a set of operations. It provides the
same operations as the package Containers.Ordered_Sets (see A.18.9
with the difference that the maximum storage is bounded.
The declaration of
the generic library package Containers.Bounded_Ordered_Sets has the same
contents and semantics as Containers.Ordered_Sets except:
The type Set is declared
with a discriminant that specifies the capacity (maximum number of elements)
type Set (Capacity : Count_Type) is tagged private;
The type Set needs finalization if and only if
type Element_Type needs finalization.
If Insert (or Include) adds an element, a check
is made that the capacity is not exceeded, and Capacity_Error is raised
if this check fails.
In procedure Assign, if Source length is greater
than Target capacity, then Capacity_Error is propagated.
The function Copy
is replaced with:
Copy (Source : Set;
Capacity : Count_Type := 0) return
Returns a set whose elements are initialized from
the values in Source. If Capacity is 0, then the set capacity is the
length of Source; if Capacity is equal to or greater than the length
of Source, the set capacity is the specified value; otherwise, the operation
Bounded (Run-Time) Errors
It is a bounded error to assign
from a bounded set object while tampering with elements or cursors of
that object is prohibited. Either Program_Error is raised by the assignment,
execution proceeds with the target object prohibiting tampering with
elements or cursors, or execution proceeds normally.
When a bounded set object S
if tampering with cursors is prohibited for S
other than due to
an assignment from another set, then execution is erroneous.
For each instance
of Containers.Ordered_Sets and each instance of Containers.Bounded_Ordered_Sets,
if the two instances meet the following conditions, then the output generated
by the Set'Output or Set'Write subprograms of either instance shall be
readable by the Set'Input or Set'Read of the other instance, respectively:
the Element_Type parameters of the two instances
are statically matching subtypes of the same type; and
the output generated by Element_Type'Output or
Element_Type'Write is readable by Element_Type'Input or Element_Type'Read,
respectively (where Element_Type denotes the type of the two actual Element_Type
Bounded ordered set objects should be implemented
without implicit pointers or dynamic allocation.
The implementation advice for procedure Move to
minimize copying does not apply.
