Jacob,

I really prefer :

 Ada.Text_IO.Put_Line
   (File => Log_File,
    Item => Event
             & Ada.Calendar.Day_Duration'Image(The_Seconds) & " - "
             & Ada.Calendar.Day_Number'Image(The_Day)
             & Ada.Calendar.Month_Number'Image(The_Month)
             & Ada.Calendar.Year_Number'Image(The_Year));

You do not have to parse the whole line to see what operator is used between
lines.

Another example is:

  A_Variable_For_Whatever
    := A_Variable_For_Whatever
        + First_Constant
        + (Second_Constant * Some_Magic_Number)
        - Some_Kind_Of_Offset;

But this is really a matter of personal preferences!

Pascal.
