Ada 95 Reference Manual
by Tucker S. Taft, Robert A. Duff
Publisher: Springer 1997
Number of pages: 526
This Ada 95 Reference Manual is identical to the new standard ISO/IEC 8652:1995(E) for the Ada programming language. The revisions and extensions documented in this manual are built on broad participation from the Ada community and generous support by leading institutions. The resulting enhancements make Ada 95 an outstanding language. The flexibility, object orientation, and improved interfacing capabilities have been added to the reliable software engineering capabilities provided and proven for over a decade by the predecessor version Ada 83; furthermore, upward compatibility from Ada 83 to Ada 95 has been achieved.

An introduction for experienced programmers new to Ada. The text highlights some key features of the language, with coded examples. It emphasizes syntax, control structures, subprogram rules, and how-to coding issues rather than design issues.
