I don't know about any survey pages (I'm sure other teamers will point those
out), but I could resist making that the point that Claw will do (from pure
Ada) the majority of what you can accomplish with MFC. (See So, if MFC is your baseline, the question is more of
what *more* can be done in Ada than can be accomplished in MFC.
