XML EZ OUT and Log4Ada in Debian

Hot on the heels of the PolyORB package for Debian, we have yet another announcement about some Ada software being added to Debian: The XML EZ Out package.

XML EZ Out is a small set of packages intended to aid the creation of XML-formatted output from within Ada programs. It basically wraps the tags and data provided to it with XML syntax and writes them to a user-supplied medium.

This medium can be any sort of writable entity, such as a file, a memory buffer, or even a communications link, such as a socket. The only functionality required of the medium is that it supply a meaningful “Put” (for writing a string) and “New_Line” procedure.

Ada can always use tools to ease projects using XML and this appears to pretty easy to use.
