Section 5: Statements


1 [A statement defines an action to be performed upon its execution.]

2/2 [This section describes the general rules applicable to all statements. Some statements are discussed in later sections: Procedure_call_statements and return statements are described in §6, “Subprograms”. Entry_call_statements, requeue_statements, delay_statements, accept_statements, select_statements, and abort_statements are described in §9, “Tasks and Synchronization”. Raise_statements are described in §11, “Exceptions”, and code_statements in §13. The remaining forms of statements are presented in this section.]

Wording Changes from Ada 83

2.a/2 The description of return statements has been moved to §6.5, “Return Statements”, so that it is closer to the description of subprograms.
