2.81 Pragma Independent_Components

Syntax:

    pragma Independent_Components (Local_NAME);

This pragma is standard in Ada 2012 mode (which also provides an aspect of the same name). It is also available as an implementation-defined pragma in all earlier versions. It specifies that the components of the designated object, or the components of each object of the designated type, must be independently addressable. This means that separate tasks can safely manipulate separate components in the composite object. This may place constraints on the representation of the object (for instance prohibiting tight packing).
