ABSTRACT

  Ada programmer's editor for Windows 3.1

EditAda is an Ada programmers editor for Windows 3.1 . The
program is designed to take advantage of the graphical
environment to make Ada programming easier. One of the most
difficult things about Ada is that there is so much of it. EditAda
has all 179 syntactic constructs of Ada available in menus,
modeless floating dialogs, and directly accessible from the
right mouse button. Other features include:

1. Ability to open hundreds of windows at once (Open Workspace...)
2. Ability to save hundreds of files at once with a (Save All and
   Save Workspace...)
3. Ability to run your compiler (compiling the top open window)
   (Apps menu)
4. Clip lists to save symbol names in code (no more scrolling to find
   that symbol name you can't remember) (Edit/Paste List).
5. Ability to analyze the top window for Ada types (Types/Dialog)
6. Ability to paste Ada language templates directly into your code
   (Templates or Right Mouse Button)
7. Ability to expand selected Ada constructs with the right mouse button
   (select syntax and click right mouse button. If Paste Ada is
   highlighted, select it and see what happens).
8. Ability to configure the editor with your own Applications in the Apps
   menu (do a save workspace as EditAda.wsp to save them as default).
9. Much more...

EditAda is outstanding for use by beginning Ada Programmers because they
no longer need to spend most of their time thumbing through the Language
Reference Manual and struggling to remember where that comma, colon, or
semicolon goes. Any syntactic construct is a mouse click (or 2) away.

When you register EditAda, the author will send you a disk with the
standard version of EditAda (which includes the Windows Help
capability), along with notification of updates. This will give you
full access to the capabilities of EditAda beyond the hints provided
in items 1 through 9 above.
