Full Circle: The free Java Developers Kit comes with a Classes.zip file
that is 9 megabytes. Could we please have those classes in
Ada-95? It also comes with fonts and sample programs for
distributing data and processing across the Net.
How can I CONTRIBUTE in helping you make this large delivery this Fall?
Why could there not be a single standardized library of data structures
and Net and Gui interfaces that were common to C, C++, Java, and Ada-95?
