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.
