Pragma Import_Object


     pragma Import_Object
          [Internal =>] LOCAL_NAME
       [, [External =>] EXTERNAL_SYMBOL]
       [, [Size     =>] EXTERNAL_SYMBOL]);
     | static_string_EXPRESSION

This pragma designates an object as imported, and apart from the extended rules for external symbols, is identical in effect to the use of the normal Import pragma applied to an object. Unlike the subprogram case, you need not use a separate Import pragma, although you may do so (and probably should do so from a portability point of view). size is syntax checked, but otherwise ignored by GNAT.
