This is an Ada compilation system, including an integrated programming environment with a GUI. It includes a compiler with some of the Ada 2005 extensions, a bunch of additional libraries, and an Ada-aware version of the Gdb debugger. AdaCore sells the professional version of this product, for various target architectures and operating systems.
For COP 4020 we have a free copy for educational use. I have installed the Linux version in my home directory. If you would like to use this compiler, with the debugger , and perhaps try out the GUI, you can add "/home/faculty/baker/linux/gnat/bin" to your PATH environment variable. When you type "gdb", "gnatmake", etc. the loader will get the copies from my directory instead of the standard place. Just using the Ada-aware gdb will be a big help. If you decide to use the IDE you will need to be logged into a Linux/Unix workstation that is runing and X server and has a network connection that will accept X-window connections (but of course these can be tunneled through ssh). The command to start the IDE is just "gps". Please let me know if you have any problems accessing it.
