High Integrity Systems
Annex addresses requirements for high integrity systems (including safety-critical
systems and security-critical systems). It provides facilities and specifies
documentation requirements that relate to several needs:
Understanding program execution;
Reviewing object code;
Restricting language constructs whose usage might
complicate the demonstration of program correctness
Execution understandability is supported by pragma
Normalize_Scalars, and also by requirements for the implementation to
document the effect of a program in the presence of a bounded error or
where the language rules leave the effect unspecified.
Reviewable and Restrictions relate to the other requirements addressed
by this Annex.
attribute (see 13.9.2
) is also useful in
addressing these needs, to avoid problems that could otherwise arise
from scalars that have values outside their declared range constraints.
