Thanks a lot !

I've always been fighting the "Ada can't do that", "Ada is for military
developement" and my way of doing so is to contribute code to the Ada
community showing that it is just not true... I think that it is easier to
convince somebody about Ada by showing projets using it instead of having him
read a document saying that Ada is what he is looking for. Ok, the document is
needed at some point.

BTW, all this is possible because the low cost of today Ada compilers. Look at
the recent contributions to the Ada community (Ada Power site, GNATCOM,
OpenToken, GtkAda, UnZip Ada, Engine_3D, AdaGIDE, VAD, TASH, JEWL...) all of
them using GNAT !

I'am always dreaming that Ada could become a mainstream language.
