 A.18.10 The Package Containers.Indefinite_Vectors

1/2
{AI95-00302-03} The language-defined generic package Containers.Indefinite_Vectors provides a private type Vector and a set of operations. It provides the same operations as the package Containers.Vectors (see A.18.2), with the difference that the generic formal Element_Type is indefinite.

{AI95-00302-03} The declaration of the generic library package Containers.Indefinite_Vectors has the same contents as Containers.Vectors except:

procedure Insert (Container : in out Vector;
                  Before    : in     Extended_Index;
                  Count     : in     Count_Type := 1);

procedure Insert (Container : in out Vector;
                  Before    : in     Cursor;
                  Position  :    out Cursor;
                  Count     : in     Count_Type := 1);
7/2
7.a/2
Discussion: These procedures are omitted because there is no way to create a default-initialized object of an indefinite type. Note that Insert_Space can be used instead of this routine in most cases. Omitting the routine completely allows any problems to be diagnosed by the compiler when converting from a definite to indefinite vector.
