ABSTRACT

Lovelace

Lovelace is an interactive Ada 95 tutor that explains the basics of the
Ada programming language. It assumes that you have had some exposure to
some other algorithmic programming language (such as Pascal, C, C++, or
Fortran).

Lovelace teaches the latest version of Ada, termed `Ada 95' or `Ada 9X',
but it does note differences where they occur with the previous version
of Ada (termed `Ada 83' or `Ada 87').
