Band Demo 3, or BD3 as the files and mainline procedure are named, is a demonstration program which illustrates how Ada and its tasking mechanism can be used to create a model of an activity in the real world. BD3 is a model of a bank, where the bank contains several tellers, implemented as Ada tasks, and is used by customers, also implemented as Ada tasks. The user at the console can monitor the status of the bank and the accounts of its customers and cause more customer tasks to execute, thereby increasing the level of activity at the bank. The tasks all operate in parallel, so a variety of events can be thought of as happening at the same time, controlled by the Ada runtime system which is built into the Adda program by the Ada compilation system. WARNING: BD3.ARC is a binary image (ARC file).
