Ada 9X, the supposed next generation Ada programming language standard, has received a fillip from Mountain View, California-based Silicon Graphics Inc which intends to commit to the first full implementation of Ada 9X. Incorporating object-oriented programming, Ada 9X is aimed at the major government and commercial application market with Ada Core Technologies Inc, an organisation founded by GNAT members, converting GNAT to the Silicon Graphics system. Silicon Graphics’s Ada 9X compiler is commited towards open access to compiler source code, based on the GNU Ada Translator, available under the terms of the Free Software Foundation’s GNU Public Licence. This provides people with the freedom both to copy and modify the source code of licensed software and source code for all distributed, modified versions must also be provided on request.
