Chapter 6: Iterators, Pools, etc.

This chapter describes various improvements in a number of general areas in Ada 2012.
There are some minor but perhaps surprising changes concerning matters such as the placement of pragmas and labels.
There are important new features regarding indexing and accessing largely introduced to simplify iterating over containers.
There are also a number of additional Restrictions identifiers many related to the introduction of aspect specifications.
The functionality of access types and storage management is made more flexible by the introduction of subpools.
Finally, a number of minor additions and corrections are made to a range of topics such as generics.
