This is a day-long short course that introduces Ada95.  The purpose of
the course is to explore the Ada95 language, including its facilities
for object-oriented design and programming, real-time programming,
distributed processing, and other domains.  The course concentrates
on the practical aspects of applying the features of Ada95 to the
software development process. Numerous examples of the language are
presented.

The files are divided into directories as follows:

  CONTENTS      - Listing of items covered in handouts for the course
  SYLLABUS      - Course syllabus
  WELSHOW       - "Welcome to Ada95" animated show

                  directories

The second release to the PAL fixes some bugs in the sample Ada95 code
and adds two animated shows (run on MSDOS PCs) to supplement the talks.
