Chapter 6: Exceptions, generics etc

This chapter describes various improvements in a number of general areas in Ada 2005.
There are some minor almost cosmetic improvements in the exceptions area which add to convenience rather than functionality. There are some important changes in the numerics area: one concerns mixing signed and unsigned integers and another concerns fixed point multiplication and division.
There are also a number of additional pragmas and Restrictions identifiers mostly of a safety-related nature.
Finally there are a number of improvements in the generics area such as better control of partial parameters of formal packages.
