Abstract : This paper describes the effort to produce an Ada language binding to the Graphical Kernel System (GKS) and to implement a subset of the GKS functionality in Ada. It presents an overview of the GKS/Ada project, discusses some of the issues raised during development of the GKS software, describes the results of a post-coding analysis comparing the binding and prototype code, and comments on the lessons drawn from this experience.
