Array indices can begin (and end) with any discrete value-whatever makes the most sense for the data. This means that you can start arrays at -5 (if that makes sense), and you can use enumerated values as 52 6. BASICTYPES(FlOAT,BOOlEAN,SUBTYPES,RECORD) 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. indices as well. Ada programs usually use a starting index of 1 if there's no particularly natural starting point; this reduces the probability of so-called "one-off' errors (people normally count from one, not zero, and can sometimes get confused when starting from zero).
