Here is a possible replacement paragraph which tries to move beyond the safety-critical, to the business-critical. Is it an improvement? -Tuck -------------- When there is no room for error... Choose Ada. Systems delivered using Ada have significantly lower error rates. This is because the Ada language supports all the most modern and effective software engineering techniques, while Ada compilers, right out of the box, provide more compile-time and run-time consistency checking than those for other programming languages. Ada compilers catch errors when they are least expensive to fix, before system integration time and deployment. This is why companies in industries including Financial Systems, Transportation, and Communications, trust Ada for their bet-the-business, software-intensive systems.
