2.11 Building Mixed Ada and C++ Programs

A programmer inexperienced with mixed-language development may find that building an application containing both Ada and C++ code can be a challenge. This section gives a few hints that should make this task easier. The first section addresses the differences between interfacing with C and interfacing with C++. The second section looks into the delicate problem of linking the complete application from its Ada and C++ parts. The last section gives some hints on how the GNAT run-time library can be adapted in order to allow inter-language dispatching with a new C++ compiler.
