to the Ada guide especially written for C and C++ programmers. Summary . programming language in a way more accessible to them. I have used the standard. There are a half-dozen or so languages that can illustrate some of the concepts of a high-level programming language, but this module uses Ada for this. Welcome to the Ada programming language! The purpose of this tutorial is to give you an overview of Ada so that you can start writing Ada programs quickly.
Also, the language provides for accessibility checks, both at compile time and at run time, that ensures that an access value cannot outlive the type of the object it points to. Though the semantics of the language allow automatic garbage collection of inaccessible objects, most implementations do not support it by default, as it would cause unpredictable behaviour in real-time systems. Ada does support a limited form of region-based memory management ; also, creative use of storage pools can provide for a limited form of automatic garbage collection, since destroying a storage pool also destroys all the objects in the pool.
A double- dash "--" , resembling an em dash , denotes comment text. Comments stop at end of line, to prevent unclosed comments from accidentally voiding whole sections of source code. Disabling a whole block of code now requires the prefixing of each line or column individually with "--". The semicolon ";" is a statement terminator , and the null or no-operation statement is null;. A single ; without a statement to terminate is not allowed.
Thus, it is a common reference for Ada programmers and not just programmers implementing Ada compilers.
Apart from the reference manual, there is also an extensive rationale document which explains the language design and the use of various language constructs.
This document is also widely used by programmers.
When the language was revised, a new rationale document was written. History[ edit ] In the s, the US Department of Defense DoD was concerned by the number of different programming languages being used for its embedded computer system projects, many of which were obsolete or hardware-dependent, and none of which supported safe modular programming.
In , a working group , the High Order Language Working Group HOLWG , was formed with the intent to reduce this number by finding or creating a programming language generally suitable for the department's and the UK Ministry of Defence requirements. After many iterations beginning with an original Straw man proposal the eventual programming language was named Ada.
The total number of high-level programming languages in use for such projects fell from over in to 37 by The HOLWG working group crafted the Steelman language requirements , a series of documents stating the requirements they felt a programming language should satisfy.
Many existing languages were formally reviewed, but the team concluded in that no existing language met the specifications. In April , after public scrutiny, the Red and Green proposals passed to the next phase. This proposal was influenced by the programming language LIS that Ichbiah and his group had developed in the s. In , C. Hoare took advantage of his Turing Award speech to criticize Ada for being overly complex and hence unreliable,  but subsequently seemed to recant in the foreword he wrote for an Ada textbook.
Its backers and others predicted that it might become a dominant language for general purpose programming and not just defense-related work. Ada Lovelace In , the US Department of Defense began to require the use of Ada the Ada mandate for all software,  though exceptions to this rule were often granted. It featured advanced distributed processing, a distributed Ada database, and object-oriented design.
Ada is also used in other air traffic systems, e. Work has continued on improving and updating the technical content of the Ada programming language. Language constructs[ edit ] Ada is an ALGOL -like programming language featuring control structures with reserved words such as if, then, else, while, for, and so on.
However, Ada also has many data structuring facilities and other abstractions which were not included in the original ALGOL 60 , such as type definitions , records , pointers , enumerations.
Such constructs were in part inherited from or inspired by Pascal. This declaration in turn is not based on the internal representation of the type but on describing the goal which should be achieved.
This allows the compiler to determine a suitable memory size for the type, and to check for violations of the type definition at compile time and run time i. Ada supports numerical types defined by a range, modulo types, aggregate types records and arrays , and enumeration types. Access types define a reference to an instance of a specified type; untyped pointers are not permitted. Special types provided by the language are task types and protected types.
Private types can only be accessed and limited types can only be modified or copied within the scope of the package that defines them. Control structures[ edit ] Ada is a structured programming language, meaning that the flow of control is structured into standard statements.
All standard constructs and deep level early exit are supported so the use of the also supported ' go to ' commands is seldom needed. Put "Iteration: " ; Ada.
Put i ; Ada. Example: Package specification example. Each package, procedure or function can have its own declarations of constants, types, variables, and other procedures, functions and packages, which can be declared in any order.
Concurrency[ edit ] Ada has language support for task-based concurrency. The fundamental concurrent unit in Ada is a task, which is a built-in limited type. The texts of these articles are language neutral but the examples are all Ada. Within the following chapters we look at foundations of Ada. These chapters may be used for reference of a particular keyword, delimiter, operator and so forth. This section is a reference of the Ada Standard Library, which is extensive and well structured.
It has these four root packages:. Besides the Standard Library, compilers usually come with a built-in library. This chapter describes the GNAT library in particular. This section is a reference of third-party Ada libraries which are not part of the compiler predefined environment but are freely available.
This book has a collection providing an on-demand PDF version as well as a printed book. A printable version of Ada Programming is available. The following are collection pages. All collection pages are comprised of groups of the already available pages. You can use them for printing or to gain a quick overview.
Please note that those pages are partly very long. The Source from the Book is available for download and online browsing. The latter allows "drill down", meaning that you can follow the links right down to the package bodies in the Ada runtime library.

Ada 95 Reference Manual: Task entries can have parameters similar to procedures, allowing tasks to synchronously exchange data.
Even beginners will find areas to participate. This book describes the rationale for Ada 95, the revised International Standard for the language and libraries. It should come as no surprise that Ada is heavily used in the aerospace, defence, medical, railroad, and nuclear industries.
