Yes, that computes. I now remember further that the guy I talked to at
the SEI said his company had also done the French line.
I have in front of me (taken from the SIGAda booth at OOPSLA'99
yesterday) the very brief, half-page Ada Success Story titled "Ada Used
in the Paris METRO System." It seems to name GEC-Alsthom as the trains
contractor and Matra Transport "for the automatic systems." I assume
we're trying to track down the latter. It says "For further info,"
contact Alsys World Dialogue in San Diego. This was a reprint from
"Alsys World Dialog," Spring 1994, Vol.8, No. 1. Presumably this is now
Aonix, and that they are now using ObjectAda is as good a guess as any.
BEN? Anyone else from Aonix? -hh
