Library functions[edit]

Filtering of text files[edit]

This functionality is used for example in creating the extended booch components. It is also used in conjunction with AdaCL.CGI to create dynamic web pages.

String tools[edit]

A Get_Line which really works. Raw String I/O. Search and Replace in strings. A special string type with support for Internationalization.

Process control[edit]

Execution of external programs (inclusive redirection of standard input and standard output) Wait for a specific process on asynchronous execution. Read and Write to the process standard input and standard output. See os.html for more details.

A thick binding to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI). This most complete of all Ada binding to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) and the only binding to support file upload “multipart/form-data”.

An optional thick binding to the Boehm-Demers-Weiser conservative garbage collector. Removes the need to deallocate memory.
