What is your preferred VCS?
Since I trust the Ada community by and large when it comes to questions of robustness and cleanliness of code, it seems fitting that I might cast about for opinions on choosing a version control system. My personal preference in the past has been GNU Arch. While its interface was a bit cumbersome, I felt it was ... 13 Aug 2010 16:50
Building SPARK GPL with an open toolchain
Hi, SPARK GPL 2010 is out (check out as binaries and source. While the SPARK and Ada tools can be build with gcc, the parts implemented in Prolog (namely the Simplifier and the Checker) require a commercial license of SICStus Prolog. I put together an experimental set of patches to bu... 7 Aug 2010 16:54
ANN: GtkAda contributions v2.8
The described here packages are proposed as a contribution to GtkAda, an Ada bindings to GTK+. It deals with the following issues: - Tasking support; - Custom models for tree view widget; - Custom cell renderers for tree view widget; - Multi-columned derived model; - Extension derived model (to add columns to a... 28 Jul 2010 16:15
The state of functional programming
As I am continuing my freshman year of college majoring in cs it seems I stand alone with the view of abuse or at least over-use of OOP concepts and the knowledge of functional programming in general. Of the many people I have met who are currently or have recently graduated with a cs degree, very few have ever lea... 3 Aug 2010 10:19

Sharing generic bodies across instantiations.
It has been my understanding that Ada's generics are designed in such a way as to allow implementations to share the code of a generic body across all the instantiations. I understand that doing this might involve a performance penalty relative to creating independent code for each instantiation. However, I can see... 3 Aug 2010 11:25

books on numerical programming in Ada
Hi, My interest being purely using numerical methods with Ada, I would like to know what publications are out there apart the Annex G of the RM? From what I've seen on the web, we have the books: 1. Scientific Ada, published in 1987 2. Applied Ada, published in 1986 and from an earlier post here on comp-... 26 Jul 2010 10:30
