10.3.7 Associative Array Attributes

Some attributes are defined as associative arrays. An associative array may be regarded as a function that takes a string as a parameter and delivers a string or string list value as its result.

Here are some examples of associative array attribute declarations:

        for Implementation ("main") use "Main.ada";
        for Switches ("main.ada") use ("-v", "-gnatv");
        for Switches ("main.ada") use Builder'Switches ("main.ada") & "-g";

Like untyped variables and simple attributes, associative array attributes may be declared several times. Each declaration supplies a new value for the attribute, replacing the previous setting.
