AdaTutor on the Web

Qunying Zhu, the man behind the blog Z’s space, have started the momentous task of moving the AdaTutor program created by John Herro and Karl Nyberg to the web.

AdaTutor is an Ada 95 tutorial program written by John J. Herro. It has been placed into public domain by John. It is a great tutorial although it only touches on Ada 95 and does not contain information for Ada 2005 and 2012.

Here I have the AdaTutor presented on this blog. You will still need to download the AdaTutor to fully making use of this tutorial, as some contents and assignment information are not in the tutorila directly.

If you want to run the tutor under Linux, this article AdaTutor – Running it in Slackware will give you an idea. Although it is mentioned for running it under Slackware, the procedure does not involve any distribution specific feature, it could apply to common Linux distributions with GNAT compiler.

AdaTutor @ Z’s space is good work, and I’ve promptly added it to the Ada Resources page at the Ada-DK Wiki. Of you’re new to Ada programming, then be sure to pay this excellent resource a visit.

AdaTutor is back online

I just got word from Karl Nyberg that the AdaTutor program is back online:

I have taken over rehosting of for John. It appears to be functional again.

John is of course John Herro, the original author of the AdaTutor program. Back in April he mentioned that he would be shutting down Luckily Karl decided to put it back online.

I haven’t tried AdaTutor yet, as it seems to be very Windows oriented, but I do plan on giving it a whirl and see what happens when it is exposed to Slackware Linux and GNAT GPL 2011.
