R.R. Software, founded in 1980, was the first company to implement the then new Ada programming language on a microcomputer. We are now the oldest independent vendor of Ada products in the world, having just celebrated our 36th birthday.
That product, dubbed Janus/Ada, today has over 35,000 users worldwide and continues to be the only compiler on the market that is written in Ada and self compiled in a personal computer environment.
Over the years, Janus/Ada has led the industry with a number of significant achievements. It was the first validated Ada compiler for the Intel 8086-based systems, for MS-DOS computers, as well as under the POSIX standard. The first Ada compiler for Microsoft Windows Toolkit and the first Ada 95 compiler for Microsoft Windows NT are examples of our technological lead.
The evolutionary result of over eighteen years of development, Janus/Ada95 is the most reliable, mature, and robust version of Ada for personal computer based programming.
