    Yes, it definitely does! Thank you.

    I'm very interested in ADA as an alternative to C/++ for some projects I plan to work on.

    I'll go to barnes and nobles or something and see if there's a book on it. It's definitely not a super popular language with as much documentation as C++ but it fits my needs really well.

    Doesn't look out of date. ADA95 is the latest, it's just the compilers that have changed.

    Thanks.

    Very informative website. Thank you.

    I was annoyed at C++ for it's lack of security =p thankfull ADA seems to be a more strongly typed C++ (in the sense that they're both somewhat strongly typed, object oriented, high level languages) but with features like Bounds checking.

    Unfortunately that site assumes I'm on linux, which I'm not =p but that's ok it's got lots of relevant info regardless.

    Hi Hungry Man,

    It might help you to know that the name of the Language is the proper name - Ada - after Lady Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron's daughter, whom is widely regarded as the first computer programmer (after coding Bernoulli's algorithm for Charles Babbage's analytical engine which was never built). Her code would have run correctly had the machine actually been built. See: Ada Lovelace.

    ADA stands for the American Dental Association among others.

    I actually had just learned about Ada Lovelace earlier today while talking to my programming professor.

    Thanks. All information is welcome =p
