Abstract : One difficulty in the use of the Ada language in interactive programming is the inability to specify serial CRT terminal screen functions when writing the user interface. This thesis presents a solution in the form of an Ada package for terminal IO that provides the programmer with Ada language function calls that perform many of the serial CRT screen control functions automatically available in other languages. A specification of the package TERM IO is presented. An implementation of the package for the VT-100 terminal and an example of the use of TERM IO are presented.
