Pragma Long_Float


     pragma Long_Float (FLOAT_FORMAT);
     FLOAT_FORMAT ::= D_Float | G_Float

This pragma is implemented only in the OpenVMS implementation of GNAT. It allows control over the internal representation chosen for the predefined type Long_Float and for floating point type representations with digits specified in the range 7 through 15. For further details on this pragma, see the DEC Ada Language Reference Manual, section 3.5.7b. Note that to use this pragma, the standard runtime libraries must be recompiled. See the description of the GNAT LIBRARY command in the OpenVMS version of the GNAT User's Guide for details on the use of this command.
