In this tutorial, we are going to implement a simple traffic light system using Ada, a statically-typed, high-level programming language designed for the development of very large software systems.
Before we get started, you need to have the GNAT Ada compiler installed on your system. If you don't already have it, you can download and install GNAT from the official AdaCore website. Follow this link to download.
Once you've got the GNAT Ada compiler installed, you're ready to compile the Ada source code into an executable.
First, navigate to the root directory of the project using your terminal:
Next, compile the Ada source code into an executable with this command:
gnatmake -D obj -o obj/main src/main.adb
This will create the executable file in the obj directory.
Finally, you're ready to run the traffic light system! Follow these steps:
First, navigate into the obj directory:
Then, run the program:
The traffic light system will start and display the different light colors, like this:
➜ ./obj/main Green light Yellow light Red light Green light Yellow light Red light Green light Yellow light Red light Green light Yellow light
You've just built a simple traffic light system in the Ada Programming Language. Congratulations!
