Ada 95

Free online book Ada 95 by Laurent Guerby. Ada 95 is a natural evolution of Ada 83. The enhancements have been made without disturbing the existing investment in Ada 83 programs and programmers. Upward compatibility has been a prime goal and has been achieved within the constraints imposed by other requirements.


This document is in several parts. The first part is an Introduction to Ada 95; it presents a general discussion of the scope and objectives of Ada 95 and its major technical features. The second part contains a more detailed chapter by chapter account of the Core language. The third part covers the various Annexes which address the predefined environment and the needs of specialized application areas. Finally there are three appendices; Appendix X addresses the issue of upward compatibility with Ada 83 and shows that for normal programs the goal of compatibility has been achieved; Appendix Y summarizes the few changes since the two public drafts of the standard; Appendix Z summarizes the requirements and concludes that they have been met. This document will be of special value to program managers, team leaders and all software professionals with concern for the organized development of software.
