RE: help with gnat pro

and one other question can i use ada to program microcontroller because i learned C++ and i didn't like it and when i read about ada i said i must learn this powerful language so can it program micro and if yes does it worth to leave C++ and learn ada so please help me because i am so confused  

RE: help with gnat pro

Sorry, I have no experience with Gnat Pro. But if you want try to compile a simple Ada program, you can use the gnat make command as given in the link above.

.. does it worth to leave C++ and learn ada ..
I'm not an Ada expert - but IMHO: No it's no worth to leave C++ because of Ada smile

My opinion is that:
  • In difference to widely used C and C++, Ada seems to be a minority language.
  • Ada is more complicated than C and C++, i.e. learning Ada requires more effort than learning C++.
But nevertheless Ada is very interesting language, and IMHO it's worth to try it.  

RE: help with gnat pro

many thanks for your reply
i will learn ada and i discovered very easy compiler "adagide" but its problem is very old but anyway don't think i will leave C++ because it is not a good language but because i am using MATLAB (witch written in C++)&(witch is very strong program in engineering because i am now at the second year of automation and control engineering) and i saw that you can do things in MATLAB for only 10 minutes (like drawing functions) that you need up to hour or more to do it in C++ so i start to search for other language that it can help me in my faculty.
the problem is i loved ada and all engineers  and doctors in the college are using C++ but you know that ada is for critical missions and i like to work in things like that so i plan to learn ada and i know i will have super difficulties because no one will help me to learn it but i think ada is worth to learn if you will use it to program robots ,sorry for my long story but please one last question that if you are in my situation(you love to work in critical missions) does you leave C++ and learn ada(fight to death alone for your dream) or stay with C++( walk with all people to the end in easy way)??
