Purpose The COVERAGE pragma marks PL/SQL code which is infeasible to test for coverage. These marks improve coverage metric accuracy. The COVERAGE pragma marks PL/SQL source code to indicate that the code may not be feasibly tested for coverage. The pragma marks a specific code section. Marking infeasible code improves the quality of coverage metrics used to assess how much testing has been achieved.
