Safe, Dynamic Task Creation in Ada

I’m a pretty big fan of R. Tyler Croy because his articles are always well-written and to the point, and his latest addition to the interwebs is no exception: Safe, Dynamic Task creation in Ada.

A few years ago, Ada become my hobby/tinker programming language of choice, for a number of reasons, concurrency being one of them. In this post I’d like to walk you through an example of dynamic task creation in Ada, which uses Ada.Task_Termination handlers, a new feature in Ada 2005.

The article is packed with neat little snippets of code for maximum entertainment value. It’s a good read if you’re interested in seeing Ada.Task_Termination in action.

Here’s hoping we wont have to wait forever before mr. Croy gets busy on his next Ada programming article.
