"Now Available!"

In this third edition, educators Michael Feldman and Elliot Koffman continue to refine and enhance their balanced presentation of modern programming concepts and Ada 95 language capabilities. Students with no prior programming experience will begin to program with this interesting and powerful, yet flexible language that is used in the Boeing 777 and Airbus 340, the International Space Station, the European high-speed rail system, and many other major projects around the world.

This text includes a CD-ROM containing versions of the GNU Ada 95 compiler (GNAT), other program development tools, and high-resolution graphics support for the Windows, DOS, Macintosh, and Linux operating systems. GNAT supports the full Ada 95 language as standardized by the ISO and the ANSI.Features

  • Provides an optional second chapter that uses "spider graphics" to swiftly introduce students to algorithmic control structures
  • Introduces control structures, data structures, and system (encapsulation) structures in parallel throughout the book
  • Uses proven pedagogical features to encourage strong programming skills. These include case studies, self-check exercises, programming style displays, syntax displays, and common-error discussions in every chapter
