Safe Pointers

From the hands of Christoph Karl Walter Grein comes an update to his Safe Pointers package, so that it now supports both Ada 95 and Ada 2005.

Here’s a little something about Safe Pointers:

Safe Pointers provide a reference counting facility to deal with
access types without compromizing safety, i.e. safe pointers clean up
behind themselves properly; no dangling references can ever be
produced.

On the website there are plenty of usage examples to be found and a very thorough explanation of the package.
