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.
