--  This package is included in all programs. It contains declarations that
--  are required to be part of every Ada program. A special mechanism is
--  required to ensure that these are loaded, since it may be the case in
--  some programs that the only references to these required packages are
--  from C code or from code generated directly by Gigi, an in both cases
--  the binder is not aware of such references.

--  System.Standard_Library also includes data that must be present in every
--  program, in particular the definitions of all the standard and also some
--  subprograms that must be present in every program.

--  The binder unconditionally includes s-stalib.ali, which ensures that this
--  package and the packages it references are included in all Ada programs,
--  together with the included data.

pragma Warnings (Off);
--  Kill warning from unrecognized pragma Polling. This can be removed

   --  locations in the compiler and runtime code:

   --    1. The Internal_Exception routine in s-exctab.adb
   --    2. The processing in gigi that tests Not_Handled_By_Others
   --    3. Expand_N_Exception_Declaration in Exp_Ch11
   --    4. The construction of the exception type in Cstand

      --  usual way by others (i.e. an others handler handles the exception).
      --  Set True to indicate that this exception is not caught by others
      --  handlers, but must be explicitly named in a handler. This latter
      --  setting is currently used by the Abort_Signal.

      Lang : String (1 .. 3);
      --  A 3-character string indicating the language raising the exception.
      --  This field is not currently used, it is set to "Ada" for exceptions
      --  defined by an Ada program.
