This diagram depicts package System and its five public children.

Omitted from the diagram is the fact that the Storage_Pools package withs in the package Ada.Finalization.


Four of the five child packages pictured above provide "core language" support for low-level programming, as needed for bit-by-bit representations and control of storage.
