    Ada Programming book at Wikipedia

    10th March 2007

    About a month ago I found this good Ada Programming book at Wikipedia Books.

    I already have some (minor) knowledge in Ada, and read some books/tutorials. I had only started reading the above-mentioned book, but from the very “Basics” I liked the narration and details provided (e.g., I do not recollect encountering the renaming of packages as a short-cut used instead of ‘use’ing packages).

    If the book continues in at least the same style, depth and examples enrichment, then I can recommend this book for those who want to study/refresh the Ada Programming knowledge and skills.

    It is from this book that I learned that GNAT “is the only Ada compiler that supports all of the optional annexes of the language standard”.

    Drupal internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n)

    10th March 2007

    This is a collection of links related to the multiple-language content in Drupal CMS.

    i18n module
    i18n: Getting the whole thing to work : http://drupal.org/node/81094
    Patch: Translations of menu titles and descriptions: http://drupal.org/node/70919
    Translated links: http://drupal.org/node/67814
    i18n: menu not expanding with URL-Alias: http://drupal.org/node/80820

    There was an alternative module to i18n, but I cannot find it at the moment.
