The keyword overriding can be used to explicitly declare a procedure or function as an overriding subprogram. There are two forms available:

procedure Overriding_Procedure (This: in Class_Type);
not overriding
procedure Not_Overriding_Procedure (This: in Class_Type);

The first declares the procedure as overriding the second does not.
