Ada-95: A guide for C and C++ programmers
by Simon Johnston
Publisher: Ada Home 1995
This tutorial for C and C++ programmers shows them what Ada can provide and how to set about turning the knowledge and experience they have gained in C/C++ into good Ada programming. It starts out by describing the Ada predefined types, and the complex types, and moves onto the simple language constructs. Section 2 introduces some very Ada specific topics and section 3 describes the new Ada-95 Object Oriented programming constructs. Section 5 describes the Ada tools for managing concurrency, the task and protected types. Section 6 is a tour of the Ada IO library.

Ada is a language of special value in the development of large programs which must work reliably. This document introduces Ada 95, which increases the flexibility of Ada making it applicable to wider domains but retains the inherent reliability.
This guide helps computer professionals produce better Ada programs by identifying a set of stylistic guidelines that will impact the quality of their Ada programs. The guidelines also provide usage examples, in addition to possible exceptions.
This text is an Ada programming language tutorial. Ada puts emphasis on good software engineering practices that scale well to very large software systems. This is the first Ada tutorial covering the new Ada 2005 standard.
