From the Script: SLIDE 2 - Purpose

The purpose of this presentation is to provide a collection of quantitative information on lifecycle cost implications of programming language use, primarily Ada versus its main competitor, C/C++.

Have you ever heard, or even made, the statement, "Let's use C/C++ or Smalltalk or Powerbuilder or anything else. It's less costly and less error-prone than Ada"?

C/C++ is an influential language today for many reasons. But, there is a growing consensus that Ada is actually becoming the best choice for your software engineering requirements.
