Abstract:

ALTHOUGH ADA WAS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A MULTITASKING ENVIRONMENT ON EMBEDDED COMPUTERS, IT CURRENTLY LACKS THE FEATURES NECESSARY FOR EXPERT SYSTEMS APPLICATIONS AND FOR SYMBOLIC PROCESSING IN GENERAL. HOWEVER, BECAUSE THE ADA LANGUAGE SPECIFICATION DEFINES A CALLING MECHANISM FOR INTERFACING WITH OTHER LANGUAGES, IT IS POSSIBLE TO ADHERE TO THE ADA STANDARD WHILE MAKING USE OF SUCH SPECIALIZED LANGUAGES. AKM ASSOCIATES PROPOSES TO PROVIDE AN EXPOSITORY REPORT ON THE ADA INTERFACE FEATURE AS IT RELATES TO LISP, PROLOG, SMALLTALK AND FORTH. THIS REPORT WILL ALSO INCLUDE A QUALITATIVE EVALUATION OF THE UTILITY AND LIMITATION OF THE ADA INTERFACE TO OTHER LANGUAGES.FOR THOSE IMPLEMENTATIONS OF ADA LACKING A CALLING MECHANISM, AKM ASSOCIATES WILL ALSO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING SUCH AN INTERFACE. FINALLY, THE REPORT WILL PROPOSE A METHOD FOR THE QUANTITATIVE DEMONSTRATION OF THE UTILITY OF THE INTERFACING FEATURES.
