Can someone tell me how to setup CB to compile ADA
« on: December 07, 2008, 03:10:52 am »
I have an small bit of code I wish to compile using ADA it is currently in Pascal, but I know ADA better than Pascal.

Plan to use GCC-ADA/GNAT under WinXP SP2.

Can someone tell me how to setup CB to compile ADA?
I just figure no reason to redo someone else work if anyone has done it already.

Never tried it... but the way gcc works, you should actually not have to do a single thing, just write Ada code and hit the button.
Gcc is a frontend that calls the C++ or Ada compiler or whatever else is needed, based on the type of source file.

It's a little harder that that, but this wiki should make it easier to do.

There is an intermediate *.ali file(s); I need to figure out how to handle it.
