Pragma Unchecked_Union


     pragma Unchecked_Union (first_subtype_LOCAL_NAME);

This pragma is used to specify a representation of a record type that is equivalent to a C union. It was introduced as a GNAT implementation defined pragma in the GNAT Ada 95 mode. Ada 2005 includes an extended version of this pragma, making it language defined, and GNAT fully implements this extended version in all language modes (Ada 83, Ada 95, and Ada 2005). For full details, consult the Ada 2005 Reference Manual, section B.3.3.
