Introduction of Ada
and Hall, ISBN 0-412-44810-6, 1993.
Review by Dick Grune, email@example.com:
Entertaining and yet thorough text book on Ada. Covers methodological
issues where useful; explains fully the need for high-level languages,
structuring, constant declarations, arrays, etc. Full of amusing and
instructive cartoons, typographically well supported, though perhaps
somewhat loud. Definitely a good book to learn Ada from, if you're not
a techofreak. Full treatment of the language, including generics,
tasks, I/O and some pragmas. Less bone dry than Barnes, but perhaps
sometimes too explicit.
