for a nice text and graphic rendering of Ada 95 BNF.

They don't have an Ada 83 one there, but syntax-wise there are few
differences. General access types, protected types, and tagged types
are the ones that come to mind. The syntactic leap is _much_ smaller
than from C to C++, for example."

However Ada 83 and Ada 95 are not the same. To read the email
lists; webpages; and newsgroup one would strain by and large to see Ada 83
but it is still being used.

"Hello everyone,

Could I please be pointer to a website and/or a good PDF file that explains
in details the Ada 83 and 95 Grammar in B.N.F. format?

I prefere Ada 95, but if there is only Ada 83 B.N.F. Existing out there, so
be it.

Thank you everyone

If you prefer and are happily using Ada 95 I do not want to deter you from
that. However I will still publicise an Ada 83 B.N.F. file on the
Internet: and send comments (if any) to

Glad you already got the Ada 95 material you wanted.
