for the development for the port parallel interface, I've planned to map the unsigned_8 value to a record of bits of type (on,off).
Do you know how to mask an integer or unsigned_8?

As far as I haven't found an ellgant way I've done this:

I've the next definitions:

type flag is (on, off);

 type Registro_Byte is
         Bit7 : Flag;
      end record;

data : registro_byte;
register : unsigned_8;

(...) I load an 8-bit integer into the register:

register:= 128; (this is done via DOSPORTS libraries)

I want data to be a map of the register bit:

    if Integer (Shift_Right (register , 0) mod 2 ) = 1 then
         data.Bit0 := On;
         data.Bit0 := Off;
      end if;

    if Integer (Shift_Right (register , 1) mod 2 ) = 1 then
         data.Bit1 := On;
         data.Bit1 := Off;
      end if;

and so on 'til BIT7.

Do you know how to assign the values using a loop?

I don't know how to do a loop that works like the next false one:

for ix in 0..7 loop
  if Integer (Shift_Right (register , ix ) mod 2 ) = 1 then
         data.BIT(ix) := On; -- wrong line
         data.Bit(ix) := Off; -- wrong line
      end if;
end loop;

Thank you in advance.
