Similar Sales Activities

MS-DOS Diskettes of GNAT and Ada95 documentation are also sold by Ada in Sweden. This is probably more convenient for Europeans.


AdaCAPS (Ada Computer-Aided Programming System), an interactive development environment (IDE) that works with GNAT (GNU-NYU Ada 95 Translator) under MS-DOS, which is also prepared by the GNAT team, is scheduled for packaging and redistribution shortly.
