Hi Sybelle :>))
it's great that you want to learn Ada - it's as easy as can be.
(Of course I'm an Adavotee which is to say a C-phobic - but what matters:
I doubt that C(++) is easier to learn.)
So just to please you, I'm sending you a little puzzle for your classroom:
procedure For_Sybelle is
type Rodriguez is
Sybelle: Integer := 1;
function Puzzling return Rodriguez is
Sybelle: Integer := 0;
return (Sybelle => Puzzling.Sybelle);
Sybelle := Puzzling.Sybelle;
Is this correct although it's recursive without end condition?
And what is the result?
Perhaps you'd like and try to invent a program with fewer names.
I'd be happy to learn whether you liked this little program.
