ABSTRACT

     GNU Ada mode is an integrated set of programs to support Ada
software development under GNU EMACS.  They support automatic
indentation, two kinds of template facilities, access to an online
Ada Language Reference Manual, automatic file header maintenance,
and other useful features.
     This collection of programs also includes a subset of programs
tailored specifically to the Verdix Ada Development System (VADS).
They allow the user to compile, make, load, list units, etc., from
either a file or a directory.  A 'next-error' facility is provided to
step through compiler messages with possible automatic lookup in the
online reference manual.  There is an interactive interface to the
Verdix debugger, a.db, and this mode will also use the Verdix tags.
     These modes incorporate many of the Ada efforts by other people
(particularly Vincent Broman, Richard Stallman, and S. Litvintchuck).
     Contact bugs-gnu-emacs-ada-request@esl.com if you want to
register your use of this software.  Lynn was trying to keep track of
all users so that he can distribute updates, bug notices, and bug fixes
(I don't know if he still is).  The above address can also be
used to subscribe to the bugs-gnu-emacs-ada email list, whose purpose
is to distribute bug reports, fixes for bugs, and suggestions for
improvements in GNU EMACS' editing support for Ada (this is also
known as the USENET newsgroup gnu.emacs.ada.bug).

     In this update, Rolf Ebert has made several modifications to the
Ada-mode, like:
  -- compatibility with emacs19
  -- toggling between spec and body
  -- generation of package body stubs from the spec
  -- automatic cursor placement from Alsys error messages

     The previous version is still in the ASR under
languages/ada/asr/gnu-ada-mode.
