CLAW is the Class Library for Ada 95 and Windows 95. It works with any complete Ada 95 compiler for Windows, including Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.

The Claw Introductory Edition includes a portion of the complete Claw interface. An introductory version of the Claw application builder is also available.

The Introductory Edition is available free of charge for evaluation and non-commercial development purposes. There is no time limit on the use of this introductory edition as long as it is not used for commercial development purposes; commerical evaluations are limited to 30 days.

We have provided versions of the Claw Introductory Edition tailored for specific compilers to make it easy to try Claw. The complete edition of Claw comes with versions for all of the supported compilers, an installation tool that makes it easy to install Claw for a specific compiler, as well as documentation on the simple changes needed to produce a custom version of Claw for any Ada 95 compiler.

Programs created with the Claw Introductory Edition (including the introductory version of the Claw Application Builder) are compatible with the complete version Claw.

The Claw Introductory Edition includes six complete example programs. The example programs include examples of most of the important functional areas in Claw: Windows, Controls, Dialogs, Tools, and Canvases. Since the implementations of the different varieties of these items are rather similar, the introductory edition includes only a few examples of each item.
