Hmmmm, I don't see any, but then again I don't know Ada. Is there no equivalent to format strings in Ada? No library support for it? Your question actually highlights the point I was trying to make - in CWE, we don't yet have a way of specifying language families, such as "any language that directly supports format strings," or "any language with dynamic evaluation." - Steve _______________________________________________ Secure Coding mailing list (SC-L) SC-L@securecoding.org List information, subscriptions, etc - http://krvw.com/mailman/listinfo/sc-l List charter available at - http://www.securecoding.org/list/charter.php SC-L is hosted and moderated by KRvW Associates, LLC (http://www.KRvW.com) as a free, non-commercial service to the software security community. _______________________________________________
