2.66 Pragma Finalize_Storage_Only

Syntax:

pragma Finalize_Storage_Only (first_subtype_LOCAL_NAME);

The argument of pragma Finalize_Storage_Only must denote a local type which is derived from Ada.Finalization.Controlled or Limited_Controlled. The pragma suppresses the call to Finalize for declared library-level objects of the argument type. This is mostly useful for types where finalization is only used to deal with storage reclamation since in most environments it is not necessary to reclaim memory just before terminating execution, hence the name. Note that this pragma does not suppress Finalize calls for library-level heap-allocated objects (see pragma No_Heap_Finalization).
