Ada 83 Reference Manual and Rationale

Online RM83

The original Ada standard, ANSI/MIL-STD-1815A-1983 (a.k.a. ISO 8652:1987), was revised and superseded by Ada 95. There are two electronic formats.

Online Hypertext
This is a hypertext version of ANSI/MIL-STD-1815A-1983 (aka ISO 8652:1987), produced by Gregg Hanna. The entry point is a table of contents at chapter-level. The index is linked in.

This hypertext version is packaged in an archive file available by FTP: rm83html-2.4.tar.* (300 to 450KB compressed, expands to 1.5MB).

Quite large, several MB; one chapter/annex in each pre-formatted text file.

The "Rationale for the Design of the Ada Programming Language" was made public in 1986. Although it was written for the original Ada 83 standard, it still contains a wealth of comments, arguments, and insights that are still relevant to Ada 95.

Quite large, several MB.
