Ada9X will soon be adopted as the new ANSI and ISO standard for the Ada programming language. Although most Ada83 programs will be upward compatible with the new standard, incompatibilities will exist in some programs due to the use of identifiers which are reserved words in Ada9X and a number of other detailed issues. The Ada9X Compatibility Tool (ACT) is an automated tool that has been designed to detect many of these incompatibilities. Included in the release is a graduate thesis that describes the design, implementation, and use of the ACT. The ACT has been run against the test programs (included in the release) and over 5M lines of Ada source code from live Ada projects. This tool was created by graduate students at Monmouth College who were pursuing Master of Software Engineering degrees. These students were members of the Software Engineering Intern program funded by the Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) Software Engineering Directorate (SED). Richard Conn, the faculty advisor for this project, is a full-time employee of The MITRE Corporation and an Adjunct Professor for Monmouth College.
