Lovelace is an interactive Ada 95 tutor that explains the basics of the Ada programming language. It assumes that you have had some exposure to some other algorithmic programming language (such as Pascal, C, C++, or Fortran).
Lovelace teaches the latest version of Ada, termed `Ada 95', but it does note differences where they occur with the previous versions of Ada (termed `Ada 83' or `Ada 87'). lovecell.zip is a distribution of Lovelace that includes the Cello browser, ready to run under MSDOS. lovelace.zip is the full distribution in a form that is easy to copy about.
Lovelace is now available as a hardcover book through Springer-Verlag. The title is "Ada 95: The Lovelace Tutorial" by David A. Wheeler, ISBN 0-387-948-01-5. The book is about 292 pages long and was published in 1997.
