I'm tending to agree with Steven on this one.  What I recommend is starting
out using ada pieces to glue the C components that you have.  Each compiler
has an "interfaces.c" package that you can use to glue everything together.
Then piece by piece, you could rethink each component and rebuild it.

Divide and conquer supporting the interfaces.

This probably doesn't answer/solve your question but I was just curious
what's the advantage in converting the C programs to Ada? I mean.. if the C
program works, isn't it better to just import the C program?
