Yes it does a fair job - of course there is always manual rework to do

BTW, according to the nature of the program (e.g. numerics), I
recommend to keep the project in Ada instead of re-translating to the
older Pascal: Ada offers unconstrained array types that matches the
flexibility of Fortran, but with a strong-typing even better than
Pascal. With fixed-sized types you will get stuck in Pascal for
