ADA-TUTR is an interactive Ada tutor program, from Software Innovations Technology, used to train people to be Ada programmers. ADA-TUTR is not just a "quiz," it is a thorough course of interactive instruction that even checks "homework" assignments. ADA-TUTR concentrates on teaching good program design, not just syntax, so that programs will take advantage of the features of Ada that make them more reliable and easier to maintain. ADA-TUTR was written by John J. Herro, Ph.D., who taught a graduate course in Ada at the State University of New York at Binghamton, and taught Ada to employees of General Electric Co. and Grumman Aerospace Corp. When ADA-TUTR is run on a PC, an Ada compiler is helpful, but not required. A list of Ada compilers available for the PC, some of them inexpensive, is included. The PC needs a hard disk or a 3 1/2" disk, and can have a monochrome or color monitor. Since ADA-TUTR comes with Ada source code, it will run on other computers with Ada compilers. It has been brought up on DEC VAX computers using DEC Ada and SUN 3 workstations using Verdix Ada, to name a couple. ADA-TUTR is marketed as "Shareware," which means that individuals, schools, and companies may try the program without charge, making and distributing as many copies as desired. To use the program after a free trial, an individual registers for a small one-time charge. An organization buys a license for a one-time charge.
