About the Ada Home
[What kind of descriptions will you find here?]
The hypertext Ada 9X Reference Manual was a nominee (when it was draft 4.0) for the Best of the Web '94 Awards (category: Best Document Design, nominees -- results):
"HTML version of the actual manual, the text is organized in a unique multi-level hierarchy. All cross-references are hyperlinked; the index isn't full-text, but an HTML version of the book's index."
The Index of the (draft) Ada 9X Reference Manual has been transmogrified and split. Also split the (draft) Ada 9X Reference Manual down to subclauses; this reduces the size of each "page" and should make browsing faster. Finally wrote Help, Credits, and Copyright sections for the Hyper-RM9X.
Note that a new version of the hypertext RM 83 came online. Gregg Hanna generated it by passing the ASCII source through various custom perl scripts.
Team Ada is up and running!
Fixed an ugly HTML bug which bugged (as in e.g. "segmentation fault") those who used lynx to browse through the Ada WWW Server.
April 94 statistics
Cut up some large pages into smaller pieces, to ease navigation; I don't think there's anything else I should cut. Re-arranged the home page (it's getting crowded!). Better titles. Some information updated/corrected. Ada's icon appears at the bottom of all pages. "Mirror links" are normally provided when an item is accessible through FTP. More tools, components, and bindings.
Update of CD-ROM references. Added (partial) information on cheap Ada compilers, educational discounts, and vendor e-mail contacts. Update on the state of Ada 9X. Link to CS Technical Reports. The (draft) 9X Reference Manual has been (almost automatically) split and transformed into hypertext.
First statistics of the server (March 94).
