Is this a typo? This should be
|A : Integer := 0;
shouldn't it? I mean it is a variable, so you can only *assign* an
initial value to it instead of setting it equal to some value.
Ok, one could argue, the (local) typed constant thing *is* a variable,
too, but at least we *call* it constant, even if in real world it is
not. IMO it would be more consistent to not allow a variable to be set
with the "=" operator. Consider this:
| A : boolean = C = D;
Looks a little bit crazy to me.
