Part II consists of questions and answers specifically chosen to yield significant information about choosing a compilation system. The last part contains a number of chapters on various sources of information. The conclusions found in this book should prove essential reading for anyone considering adoption of the Ada programming language and will be of value to the entire Ada community.Further examples of the need to use machine code arise where there is a requirement to interface to a hardware device ... This can happen where the target machine has special instructions for controlling the device, or the device uses specialanbsp;...
