pragma Common_Object ( [Internal =>] LOCAL_NAME, [, [External =>] EXTERNAL_SYMBOL] [, [Size =>] EXTERNAL_SYMBOL] ); EXTERNAL_SYMBOL ::= IDENTIFIER | static_string_EXPRESSION
This pragma enables the shared use of variables stored in overlaid
linker areas corresponding to the use of
in Fortran. The single
object local_name is assigned to the area designated by
the External argument.
You may define a record to correspond to a series
of fields. The size argument
is syntax checked in GNAT, but otherwise ignored.
Common_Object is not supported on all platforms. If no
support is available, then the code generator will issue a message
indicating that the necessary attribute for implementation of this
pragma is not available.
