   --  that we want to avoid dragging in the code in this unit if possible.

   lbits1 : constant := System.Parameters.long_bits - 1;

   subtype chars is System.Address;
   --  Pointer to null-terminated array of characters

   subtype FILEs is System.Address;
   --  Corresponds to the C type FILE*

   subtype voids is System.Address;
   --  Corresponds to the C type void*

   subtype int is Integer;
   --  Note: the above type is a subtype deliberately, and it is part of
   --  this spec that the above correspondence is guaranteed. This means
   --  that it is legitimate to, for example, use Integer instead of int.
   --  We provide this synonym for clarity, but in some cases it may be
   --  convenient to use the underlying types (for example to avoid an
   --  unnecessary dependency of a spec on the spec of this unit).

   type long is range -(2 ** lbits1) .. +(2 ** lbits1) - 1;
   --  Note: the above type also used to be a subype, but the correspondence
   --  was unused so it was made into a parameterized type to avoid having
   --  multiple versions of this spec for systems where long /= Long_Integer.

   --  documentation on these functions, see the Microsoft C "Run-Time
   --  Library Reference" (Microsoft Press, 1990, ISBN 1-55615-225-6),
   --  which includes useful information on system compatibility.

   -- Extra functions --

   --  These functions supply slightly thicker bindings than those above.
   --  They are derived from functions in the C Run-Time Library, but may

   --  functions.

   -- Control of Text/Binary Mode --

   --  If text_translation_required is true, then the following functions may
   --  be used to dynamically switch a file from binary to text mode or vice
   --  versa. These functions have no effect if text_translation_required is
   --  false (i.e. in normal unix mode). Use fileno to get a stream handle.

   --  buffer a NUL terminated string representing the full path name for
   --  the file name. On systems where it is relevant the drive is also part
