{*AI05-0001-1*}
The language-defined generic package Containers.Bounded_Hashed_Maps provides
a private type Map and a set of operations. It provides the same operations
as the package Containers.Hashed_Maps (see A.18.5),
with the difference that the maximum storage is bounded.

{*AI05-0001-1*}
The declaration of the generic library package Containers.Bounded_Hashed_Maps
has the same contents and semantics as Containers.Hashed_Maps except:

The type Map is declared
with discriminants that specify both the capacity (number of elements)
and modulus (number of distinct hash values) of the hash table as follows:

Modulus : Hash_Type)

The type Map needs finalization if and only if
type Key_Type or type Element_Type needs finalization.

The description of
Reserve_Capacity is replaced with:

If the specified Capacity is larger than the capacity
of Container, then Reserve_Capacity propagates Capacity_Error. Otherwise,
the operation has no effect.

An additional operation
is added immediately following Reserve_Capacity:

Default_Modulus returns an implementation-defined
value for the number of distinct hash values to be used for the given
capacity (maximum number of elements).

The function Copy
is replaced with:

{*AI05-0264-1*}
Returns a map with key/element pairs initialized from the values in Source.
If Capacity is 0, then the map capacity is the length of Source; if Capacity
is equal to or greater than the length of Source, the map capacity is
the value of the Capacity parameter; otherwise, the operation propagates
Capacity_Error. If the Modulus argument is 0, then the map modulus is
the value returned by a call to Default_Modulus with the map capacity
as its argument; otherwise, the map modulus is the value of the Modulus
parameter.

It is a bounded error to assign from a bounded map
object while tampering with elements [or cursors] of that object is prohibited.
Either Program_Error is raised by the assignment, execution proceeds
with the target object prohibiting tampering with elements [or cursors],
or execution proceeds normally.

{*AI05-0265-1*}
When a bounded map object *M* is finalized, if tampering with cursors
is prohibited for *M* other than due to an assignment from another
map, then execution is erroneous.

For each instance of Containers.Hashed_Maps and each instance of Containers.Bounded_Hashed_Maps,
if the two instances meet the following conditions, then the output generated
by the Map'Output or Map'Write subprograms of either instance shall be
readable by the Map'Input or Map'Read of the other instance, respectively:

{*AI05-0184-1*}
{*AI05-0248-1*}
the Element_Type parameters of the two instances are statically matching
subtypes of the same type; and

{*AI05-0184-1*}
the output generated by Element_Type'Output or Element_Type'Write is
readable by Element_Type'Input or Element_Type'Read, respectively (where
Element_Type denotes the type of the two actual Element_Type parameters);
and

{*AI05-0184-1*}
the preceding two conditions also hold for the Key_Type parameters of
the instances.

{*AI05-0001-1*}
{*AI05-0269-1*}
Bounded hashed map objects should be implemented without implicit pointers
or dynamic allocation.

{*AI05-0001-1*}
The implementation advice for procedure Move to minimize copying does
not apply.

{*AI05-0001-1*}
{*AI05-0160-1*}
{*AI05-0184-1*}
The generic package Containers.Bounded_Hashed_Maps
is new.
