ISO (the International Organization for Standardization)
and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission) form the specialized
system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members
of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards
through technical committees established by the respective organization
to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical
committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international
organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO
and IEC, also take part in the work.
In the field of information technology, ISO and
IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1. Draft
International Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are
circulated to national bodies for voting. Publication as an International
Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting
International Standard ISO/IEC 8652 was prepared
by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information Technology.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first
edition (ISO 8652:1987), of which it constitutes a technical revision.
Annexes A to J form an integral part of this International
Standard. Annexes K to P are for information only.

is the Annotated Ada Reference Manual (AARM). It contains the entire
text of the Ada 95 standard (ISO/IEC 8652:1995), plus various annotations.
It is intended primarily for compiler writers, validation test writers,
and other language lawyers. The annotations include detailed rationale
for individual rules and explanations of some of the more arcane interactions
among the rules.
