2.159 Pragma Short_Circuit_And_Or

Syntax:

pragma Short_Circuit_And_Or;

This configuration pragma causes any occurrence of the AND operator applied to operands of type Standard.Boolean to be short-circuited (i.e. the AND operator is treated as if it were AND THEN). Or is similarly treated as OR ELSE. This may be useful in the context of certification protocols requiring the use of short-circuited logical operators. If this configuration pragma occurs locally within the file being compiled, it applies only to the file being compiled. There is no requirement that all units in a partition use this option.
