Resources for Ada

Ada-Oriented CD-ROMs

The two-CD Walnut Creek Ada CDROM is a collection of the information and code contained in the PAL, created by Walnut Creek CDROM and Richard Conn.

With thousands of files, this set of discs is an indispensible resource for any Ada programmer. It has Ada language reference manuals, a complete set of Ada language issue comments, the GNAT compiler, PC and Mac Ada/ED compilers, benchmarks, validation suites, courseware, Ada programming tools, and prodigious amounts of source code.

The 2-CD "Ada Collection", collected and organized by the Grebyn Corporation, and published by Rush River Software, is a very large collection of Ada material (announced in December 1993).

The "Ada Collection" adds up to approximately 1.2 GB and includes Ada software and utilities, extensive documentation and commentary on various aspects of Ada, comprising material from university and government repositories as well as contributions from industry.

The "Ada Collection" presents all material in the simplest format possible. There is no need for special software to access the collection. This allows the material to be used on many different systems; when the software is available for only a particular system, such as executables, it is retained in that form for easy copying and immediate execution.

Most of the material has been collected from many different FTP archives, and includes material from both individual and corporate contributors. A partial list of contents includes:

To introduce the Ada Collection, Rush River Software is bundling the CD-ROM repository with two invaluable Ada resources, for $144.95: Object-Oriented Design with Ada: Maximizing Reusability for Real-Time Systems, by Kjell Nielsen (regularly $49.95), and Developing with Ada: Life-Cycle Methods, by Bruce E. Krell (regularly $54.95). Both books are published by Computer Literacy Bookshops. The Basic CD-ROM Package costs $79.95.
