LOVELACE: Ada 95 TUTORIAL RELEASED
A free on-line tutorial for Ada 95 has just been released called `Lovelace'. All you need to use it is a World Wide Web (WWW) viewer (such as Mosaic or Netscape) and access to the Internet.
Lovelace 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' or `Ada 9X', but it does note differences where they occur with the previous version of Ada (termed `Ada 83' or `Ada 87').
To use Lovelace, start your favorite WWW viewer and "open" the following URL:
Lovelace was developed by David A. Wheeler on a volunteer basis. Comments & suggestions are welcome, as are volunteers who would like to expand it.
Lovelace is not endorsed by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), the Ada Joint Program Office (AJPO), or the U.S. Department of Defense.
For more information, please contact:
