5.4 DATA STRUCTURES
The data structuring capabilities of Ada are a powerful resource;
therefore, use them to model the data as closely as possible.
It is possible to group logically related data and let the language
control the abstraction and operations
on the data rather than requiring the programmer or maintainer
to do so. Data can also be organized in a building block fashion.
In addition to showing how a data structure is organized (and
possibly giving the reader an indication as to why it was organized
that way), creating the data structure from smaller components
allows those components to be reused. Using the features that
Ada provides can increase the maintainability of your code.
