In the April 1998 issue of Circuit Cellar Ink, an article
"Software Development for RTOSs" has a section on Real
Time Programming Languages that remarks "Unless you code
for the government or systems that need to be flight
qualified, you probably won't see Ada.  Ada is good for
implementing large systems where many developers are
working in different organizations, but it's sometimes
difficult to use for expressing real-time issues."  Are
those true statements?  If not, perhaps someone could send
a letter to the editor correcting them.
