Hi, Everyone,

I thought you might be interested in this new introduction to Ada95.
The material assembles into a 400-page course notebook and includes
many (what I think to be) interesting examples of what you can do with
Ada95.  The examples (with one exception) can be compiled on both the
AONIX Ada95 compiler and GNAT 3.09.  I found it particularly interesting
that both compilers were able to generate code that handled the multitasking
example (Bank Demo 5) with over 30 tasks running.

This is a day-long short course that introduces Ada95.  The purpose of
the course is to explore the Ada95 language, including its facilities
for object-oriented design and programming, real-time programming,
distributed processing, and other domains.  The course will concentrate
on the practical aspects of applying the features of Ada95 to the
software development process. Numerous examples of the language are
