EZ2LOAD - PLUG-AND-PLAY Ada83/Ada95 FOR DOS
The George Washington University authored the package ez2load, a "plug-and-play" distribution of free Ada compilers and other tools for MS-DOS. It includes GNAT for DOS, the GW-GNAT editor, a new Turbo-style editor called AdaCAPS, GW-Ada/Ed, AVLAda9X and Ada-Tutor. Distribution consists of a number of diskette-size zip files, together with a menu-driven installer program. Intended mainly for the Ada CD-ROM, this distribution is equally useful as an ftp or diskette package. Prof. Michael B. Feldman, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, led the project.
