--  This package implements Calendar.Time delays using protected objects.

--  Note: the compiler generates direct calls to this interface, in the
--  processing of time types.

package Ada.Calendar.Delays is

   procedure Delay_For (D : Duration); 
   --  Delay until an interval of length (at least) D seconds has passed,
   --  or the task is aborted to at least the current ATC nesting level.
   --  This is an abort completion point.
   --  The body of this procedure must perform all the processing
   --  required for an abortion point.

   procedure Delay_Until (T : Time); 
   --  Delay until Clock has reached (at least) time T,
   --  or the task is aborted to at least the current ATC nesting level.
   --  The body of this procedure must perform all the processing
   --  required for an abortion point.

   function To_Duration (T : Time) return Duration; 

end Ada.Calendar.Delays;
