  Ada programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ada is a structured, statically typed imperative computer programming language designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull during 1977–1983.
Requests for proposals for a new programming language were issued and four contractors were hired to develop their proposals under the names of Red (Intermetrics led by Benjamin Brosgol), Green (CII Honeywell Bull, led by Jean Ichbiah), Blue (SofTech, led by John Goodenough), and Yellow (SRI International, led by Jay Spitzen).
This proposal was influenced by the programming language LIS that Ichbiah and his group had developed in the 1970s.

Ada is a programming language named after Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, which is suitable for all development needs.
Ada puts unique emphasis on, and provides strong support for, good software engineering practices that scale well to very large software systems (millions of lines of code, and very large development teams).
Portability: the language definition allows compilers to differ only in a few controlled ways, and otherwise defines the semantics of programs very precisely; as a result, Ada source text is very portable across compilers and across target hardware platforms.

 Some information on the Ada programming language
Ada is an internationally standardized, general-purpose programming language used in a wide variety of applications -- from missile control to payroll processing to air traffic control.
Ada contains features commonly found in other programming languages and provides additional support for modern programming practices, for controlling special purpose hardware to meet real-time deadlines, and for the creation and enhancement of large and complex programs by groups of programmers over long periods of time.
Ada organizes code into self-contained units that can be planned, written, compiled, and tested separately; this feature allows programs to be written in portions by teams working in parallel before being integrated into the final product.

 File Structures With Ada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
A programming language, such as Pascal, with less support for file organizations, would allow students to gain greater computer science knowledge concerning the implementation of data structures on external files.
The Ada programming language can be used in a more practical pedagogical way by allowing students to gain more in-depth file implementation experience as they analyze data structures for efficiency and write their own access routines.
The central theme of the chapter is the reduction in the number of I/O operations required for a program that accesses a blocked file and the reduction of the time that the CPU waits for an I/O operation to be completed when using a buffered file.
