TEXT/PLAIN (48 lines)
I've been quietly contacting the schools listed as using Ada or Pascal to
update their entries.  (I'm not through the list yet, because it takes
time to locate email addresses for each department.) So far I have found
NO ONE still teaching Ada or Pascal.  WVU changed several years ago from
Ada to C++. I continue to believe that Ada is a better language, but I
think we're being outvoted everywhere. :-(

I would WELCOME news from anyone still teaching Ada!
