ABSTRACT

This file:  sw-eng.falls-church.va.us:/public/adaic/work-grp/abwg/README
Last updated:  8 February 1995

The Ada Bindings Working Group (ABWG), a working group under SIGAda, is
interested in pursuing Ada bindings to "standards".

ABWG's mission is:

  To identify and disseminate issues and recommendations for the
  creation of Ada bindings to software systems.

Goals include the standardization and publication of package
specifications (with commercial vendors supplying bodies to those
specifications).

ABWG's chairman is Bill Loftus:
