by John English
Publisher: Prentice Hall 2001
Number of pages: 486
This book is a beginner’s introduction to Ada 95. It uses an example-driven approach that gradually develops small programs into large case-study type programs. The focus of this book is on using object-oriented approaches to write maintainable, extensive programs. Important and unique ADA features such as exception handling, user-defined types, procedures, functions, and packages are covered early in the text.
