--  arrays as closely as possible with the one additional capability of
--  dynamically modifying the value of the Last attribute.

--  Note that this interface should remain synchronized with those in
--  GNAT.Table and GNAT.Dynamic_Tables to keep coherency between these

   package Table is

      --  Table_Component_Type and Table_Index_Type specify the type of the
      --  array, Table_Low_Bound is the lower bound. Index_type must be an
      --  integer type. The effect is roughly to declare:

      --    Table : array (Table_Index_Type range Table_Low_Bound .. <>)
      --                       of Table_Component_Type;

      --    Note: since the upper bound can be one less than the lower
      --    bound for an empty array, the table index type must be able
      --    to cover this range, e.g. if the lower bound is 1, then the
      --    Table_Index_Type should be Natural rather than Positive.

      --  Table_Component_Type may be any Ada type, except that controlled
      --  types are not supported. Note however that default initialization
      --  will NOT occur for array components.

      --  The Table_Initial values controls the allocation of the table when
      --  it is first allocated, either by default, or by an explicit Init
      --  call. The value used is Opt.Table_Factor * Table_Initial.

      --  The Table_Increment value controls the amount of increase, if the
      --  table has to be increased in size. The value given is a percentage
      --  value (e.g. 100 = increase table size by 100%, i.e. double it).

      --  The Table_Name parameter is simply use in debug output messages it
      --  has no other usage, and is not referenced in non-debugging mode.

      --  The Last and Set_Last subprograms provide control over the current
      --  logical allocation. They are quite efficient, so they can be used
      --  freely (expensive reallocation occurs only at major granularity
      --  chunks controlled by the allocation parameters).

      --  Note: We do not make the table components aliased, since this would
      --  restict the use of table for discriminated types. If it is necessary
      --  to take the access of a table element, use Unrestricted_Access.

      --  WARNING: On HPPA, the virtual addressing approach used in this unit
      --  is incompatible with the indexing instructions on the HPPA. So when
      --  using this unit, compile your application with -mdisable-indexing.

      --  WARNING: If the table is reallocated, then the address of all its
      --  components will change. So do not capture the address of an element
      --  and then use the address later after the table may be reallocated.
      --  One tricky case of this is passing an element of the table to a
      --  subprogram by reference where the table gets reallocated during
      --  the execution of the subprogram. The best rule to follow is never
      --  to pass a table element as a parameter except for the case of IN
      --  mode parameters with scalar values.

      subtype Big_Table_Type is
        Table_Type (Table_Low_Bound .. Table_Index_Type'Last);
      --  We work with pointers to a bogus array type that is constrained
      --  with the maximum possible range bound. This means that the pointer
      --  is a thin pointer, which is more efficient. Since subscript checks
      --  in any case must be on the logical, rather than physical bounds,
      --  safety is not compromised by this approach.

      type Table_Ptr is access all Big_Table_Type;
      --  The table is actually represented as a pointer to allow reallocation

      Table : aliased Table_Ptr := null;
      --  The table itself. The lower bound is the value of Low_Bound.
      --  Logically the upper bound is the current value of Last (although
      --  the actual size of the allocated table may be larger than this).
      --  The program may only access and modify Table entries in the range
      --  First .. Last.

      Locked : Boolean := False;
      --  Table expansion is permitted only if this switch is set to False. A
      --  client may set Locked to True, in which case any attempt to expand
      --  the table will cause an assertion failure. Note that while a table
      --  is locked, its address in memory remains fixed and unchanging. This
      --  feature is used to control table expansion during Gigi processing.
      --  Gigi assumes that tables other than the Uint and Ureal tables do
      --  not move during processing, which means that they cannot be expanded.
      --  The Locked flag is used to enforce this restriction.

      --  the same initialization steps). However, it is harmless to do so, and

      --  the allocated table has an upper bound of at least Last). If Set_Last
      --  reduces the size of the table, then logically entries are removed
      --  from the table. If Set_Last increases the size of the table, then
      --  new entries are logically added to the table.
