This chapter covers the different kinds of Ada statements, except those unique to concurrent systems, which are covered in Chapter 6.

Chapter Contents

The page Simple and Compound Statements in Appendix A provides a complete list of all kinds of Ada statements, separated into two categories. Simple statements are single lines of code, each ending with a semi-colon. Compound statements (such as if, case, loop and block statements) require multiple lines.

The previous chapter included examples of assignment statements, procedure calls, if statements, loop statements, exit statements, and return statements. But, in this chapter we systematically describe and illustrate these and other kinds of statements in turn.
