13.12 Pragma Restrictions and Pragma Profile

1/3
A pragma Restrictions expresses the user's intent to abide by certain restrictions. A pragma Profile expresses the user's intent to abide by a set of Restrictions or other specified run-time policies. These may facilitate the construction of simpler run-time environments. 

Syntax

2
The form of a pragma Restrictions is as follows: 
3
  pragma Restrictions(restriction{, restriction});
4/2
restriction ::= restriction_identifier
    | restriction_parameter_identifier => restriction_parameter_argument
4.1/2
restriction_parameter_argument ::= name | expression

Name Resolution Rules

5
Unless otherwise specified for a particular restriction, the expression is expected to be of any integer type. 

Legality Rules

6
Unless otherwise specified for a particular restriction, the expression shall be static, and its value shall be nonnegative. 
Paragraph 7 was deleted.

Post-Compilation Rules

8/3
A pragma Restrictions is a configuration pragma. If a pragma Restrictions applies to any compilation unit included in the partition, this may impose either (or both) of two kinds of requirements, as specified for the particular restriction:
8.1/3
A restriction may impose requirements on some or all of the units comprising the partition. Unless otherwise specified for a particular restriction, such a requirement applies to all of the units comprising the partition and is enforced via a post-compilation check.
8.2/3
A restriction may impose requirements on the run-time behavior of the program, as indicated by the specification of run-time behavior associated with a violation of the requirement.
8.3/1
  For the purpose of checking whether a partition contains constructs that violate any restriction (unless specified otherwise for a particular restriction):
8.4/1
Generic instances are logically expanded at the point of instantiation;
8.5/1
If an object of a type is declared or allocated and not explicitly initialized, then all expressions appearing in the definition for the type and any of its ancestors are presumed to be used;
8.6/1
A default_expression for a formal parameter or a generic formal object is considered to be used if and only if the corresponding actual parameter is not provided in a given call or instantiation. 

Implementation Permissions

8.7/3
  An implementation may provide implementation-defined restrictions; the identifier for an implementation-defined restriction shall differ from those of the language-defined restrictions. 
9
An implementation may place limitations on the values of the expression that are supported, and limitations on the supported combinations of restrictions. The consequences of violating such limitations are implementation defined. 
9.1/1
  An implementation is permitted to omit restriction checks for code that is recognized at compile time to be unreachable and for which no code is generated.
9.2/1
  Whenever enforcement of a restriction is not required prior to execution, an implementation may nevertheless enforce the restriction prior to execution of a partition to which the restriction applies, provided that every execution of the partition would violate the restriction.

Syntax

10/3
The form of a pragma Profile is as follows: 
11/3
  pragma Profile (profile_identifier {, profile_pragma_argument_association});

Legality Rules

12/3
 The profile_identifier shall be the name of a usage profile. The semantics of any profile_pragma_argument_associations are defined by the usage profile specified by the profile_identifier.

Static Semantics

13/3
 A profile is equivalent to the set of configuration pragmas that is defined for each usage profile. 

Post-Compilation Rules

14/3
 A pragma Profile is a configuration pragma. There may be more than one pragma Profile for a partition. 

Implementation Permissions

15/3
 An implementation may provide implementation-defined usage profiles; the identifier for an implementation-defined usage profile shall differ from those of the language-defined usage profiles.
NOTES
16/2
36  Restrictions intended to facilitate the construction of efficient tasking run-time systems are defined in D.7. Restrictions intended for use when constructing high integrity systems are defined in H.4.
17
37  An implementation has to enforce the restrictions in cases where enforcement is required, even if it chooses not to take advantage of the restrictions in terms of efficiency.
