Abstract Ada/Mindstorms 2.0 is an Ada interface to the Lego RCX "brick," included as part of the Lego Mindstorms#8482; Robotics Invention System. Programs are written with an Ada compiler, translated into Dave Baum's Not Quite C language (NQC), then recompiled and downloaded through the Mindstorms IR transmitter to the RCX.Ada/Mindstorms 2.0 is distributed with the USAFA AdaGIDE Windows Ada compiler. This document assumes that you have obtained and installed AdaGIDE. If you are using another Ada compiler, see Appendix B. We also assume a working knowledge of Ada. If you haven't used Ada before, we recommend learning the basics first before reading further. http://www.adahome.com/Discover/Introduction.html is a good place to start. We also assume a general familiarity with the Lego Mindstorms Robotics Invention System and the RCX.
