Ada 95 for C and C ++ Programmers

Ada 95 for C and C ++ Programmers

Ada 95 for C and C++ Programmers will show you everything you need to know to program in Ada 95, taking you through not only the differences in syntax but also the conceptual differences in how the languages are used.

Description

This document is written primarily for C and C++ programmers and is set out to describe the Ada programming language in a way more accessible to them. I have used the standard Ada documentation conventions, code will look like this and keywords will look like this. I will include references to the Ada Reference Manual in braces and in italics, {1.1}, which denotes section 1.1. The ARM is reference 1 at the end of this document. Another useful reference is the Lovelace on-line tutorial which is a great way to pick up Ada basics.

I will start out by describing the Ada predefined types, and the complex types, and move onto the simple language constructs. Section 2 will start to introduce some very Ada specific topics and section 3 describes the new Ada-95 Object Oriented programming constructs. Section 5 describes the Ada tools for managing concurrency, the task and protected types, these are worth investing some time getting to grips with. Section 6 is a tour of the Ada IO library and covers some of the differences in concept and implementation between it and C stdio.
