CLAW provides an interface to Windows which is familiar to Ada 95 programmers. It removes the rough edges from the Win32 API, and puts an Ada face on Win32 programming. CLAW was designed to be tasking-safe, and to use Ada 95 features like exceptions and child packages effectively. In addition to providing lower-level objects similar to those found in the underlying API, it also provides higher-level objects which simplify programming and include capabilities missing from Win32.
This presentation will describe the CLAW bindings and their design, and how Ada 95 Windows applications would be designed using CLAW and its GUI builder. The CLAW design goals will be discussed, along with some of the techniques used to meet the goals. We will look at samples of applications written using CLAW, and we will look at how to use the CLAW builder to add a GUI to an existing application.
Attendees should be familiar with Ada programming, and have some familiarity with the OOP features in Ada 95.
