Value Assignment

  A value assignment consists of a value reference (the name of the value), the type of the value, ::= (``is assigned the value''), and a valid value notation. A value reference must begin with a lower case letter, but otherwise has the same syntax as a type assignment. For example,

     gadget  ItemId  ::=
        partnumber      "7685B2",
        quantity        73,
        wholesaleprice  13.50,
        saleprice       24.95

defines ``gadget" as a value of type ``ItemId".
