Ada* is surely some of the most major programming languages to emerge within the final decade. the way of its inception and help via the united states division of security (DoD) guarantees that it'll be used commonly for the indefinite destiny in programming huge and intricate structures. The becoming availability of compilers signifies that many corporations are already dedicated to utilizing the language for large and important purposes. As a maybe inevitable results of its layout objectives, Ada is a "large" language. It has Pascal-like regulate and sort constructs; a mechanism for exception dealing with; a package deal constitution for info hiding, decomposition and separate compilation; amenities for low-level programming; and a tasking version of concurrency. it's probably this final sector that has generated such a lot debate, feedback and war of words. the aim of this e-book is to check the tasking version within the mild of the wide research and remark which has seemed within the literature. The overview is inevitably wide-ranging, together with dialogue of - Ada as a basic goal concurrent programming language, - Ada as a language for embedded and allotted platforms, - implementation matters, with specific connection with dispensed platforms, - formal semantics, specification and verification, - proposed language alterations. by way of consolidating this dialogue in the confines of a unmarried assessment, capability clients of the tasking facility are enabled to familiarise themselves with the entire elements which could impinge upon the functionality, reliability and correctness in their software program. The publication additionally presents a spotlight for any debate on differences to the Ada language, or advancements from it.

Example text

This will evaluate the value of the variable and display the string Songs By Sinatra. doctype html> <%= title %>

<%= title %>

If you restart the server (or just refresh the page if you’re using Sinatra::Reloader), you won’t see any difference; this is just what we expected, only now we’re using variables for outputting the title. DRYing Out with Layouts We can add as many views as we like using inline views, but we’d end up repeating a lot of the view code since most pages will have the same HTML at the start and end (the head section, for example).

If you try this now by going to http://localhost:4567/missing in your browser, you’ll see Sinatra’s standard “page missing” page. 5. 5. Sinatra’s standard “page missing” page The page also provides a helpful hint on how to create a route handler for that missing route—neat, huh? It’s really just for development, though; the page looks different when in production mode. Still, it’s good practice to have our own bespoke 404 error page for the site. Once again, this couldn’t be simpler—Sinatra has a special method for that, called not_found.

If this variable is nil (because it hasn’t been set in the route handler), the “Songs By Sinatra” string will be displayed as a default title. We remove the title variable that we were previously using. ” Have a go at setting the @title in the other route handlers, too! Start Your Engines So far, we’ve been using ERB to produce our views, but there are actually a large number of engines that can render HTML in Sinatra using the Tilt interface. com/ I’m a big fan of Slim as it reads just like HTML, but without any of the angle brackets and closing tags.
