2.121 Pragma Overriding_Renamings

Syntax:

pragma Overriding_Renamings;

This is a GNAT configuration pragma to simplify porting legacy code accepted by the Rational Ada compiler. In the presence of this pragma, a renaming declaration that renames an inherited operation declared in the same scope is legal if selected notation is used as in:

pragma Overriding_Renamings;
...
package R is
  function F (..);
  ...
  function F (..) renames R.F;
end R;

even though RM 8.3 (15) stipulates that an overridden operation is not visible within the declaration of the overriding operation.
