|Description||In Proceedings of the 2002 annual ACM SIGAda international conference on Ada
To date, compilers used in the construction of FAA-certified software have not been specially qualified for use in safety-critical applications. This has resulted in costly test procedures that attempt to verify the correctness and achieve structural coverage of the object code program rather than the source program. The FAA has adapted the criteria set forth in the document RTCA DO-178B for the design, development, and verification of tools used in the construction of safety-critical software. Tools meeting those criteria can be qualified as code development tools, and their output can be used without additional verification. This paper describes the internals of a compiler for a subset of Ada that is designed to meet the qualification criteria. Use of the qualified compiler will reduce the test burden for certifying flight software at the highest levels of criticality.

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
