 Ada books for 1996

Hi Ada programmers,

Since I've been reading your messages for the last few months now on
BAD Ada books, I thought I would share my collection of books in the
market. You can
use the GNAT Ada95 free compiler or Visual Ada 95 for most of this
stuff. if you want to know something more abuot Ada, let me know and
I'll try to look it up for you.

Dr. Krell offers his opinion on the key to using Ada to its fullest
potential: a tested development methodology for implementing realtime
Ada systems quickly and efficiently, from requirements and code
generation through design and test. By applying the steps outlined in
Dr. Krell's book, "software engineers can create realtime systems
that are flexible, integrate easily, perform well, and satisfy user
needs," according to the publisher.
