We describe the development of a formal specification of the static semantics of Ada in form of an attribute grammar. This specification is complete, and was tested extensively with automatically generated equivalent Pascal programs. From this specification we systematically developed the semantic analysis part of our Ada Compiler Front End. We outline the general proceeding when specifying semantic analysis with attribute grammars and then discuss to some extent examples about declaration elaboration and overloading resolution.
