The capability to display a graphic image is supported by Aonix's ObjectAda
(personal edition and up but not the Special free edition).  There are
versions available for Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT.  There is also a UNIX

Support via an update subscription service is very reasonably priced.  Note:
Aonix recently closed its Boston office (where ObjectAda for Windows was
developed) and consolidated things in their San Diego.

Subject: Writing graphics files

Hi Teamers,
        I am working on a tutorial application to teach iteration to CS1
using a graphical interface.  To achieve my aims I need to be able to write
a graphics file to a Windows98 graphics window controlling its size and
position in the window.  The format of the file doesn't matter but I am
thinking in terms of .bmp, .gif or .jpg files.
        I've ransacked our library and hunted high and low but I can't find
anything which helps (even in a certain language of monosyllabic name which
I won't mention).  Obviously, I want to be able to do this job in Ada, and
there must be a way.  Does anyone have any ideas?
