I'm already having enough trouble trying to keep up on mips-irix,
but thank you :). If it's Ada-specific questions that you have,
don't hesitate to ask me, though.

:-). I just had a look at Fortran, and although it's harder to read
when you're not used to their style, it looks pretty close to C or
Ada as well.
