GNU Ada compiler
GNAT is a full-featured Ada 2012 compiler. A quote from http://www.adaic.org says: "Easily reused and maintained, readable and user friendly, Ada code facilitates such massive software projects as the Space Station and the Paris Metro. It has proven to be extraordinarily robust in decades' worth of daily field tests under the most rigorous conditions in which millions of lives have been at stake." Ada is the language for real-world, mission-critical programming.
At the same time, Ada's radical type safety helps novice programmers avoid many common mistakes and deliver their software on time (see http://www.adaic.org/atwork/trains.html).
This empty package depends on the default version of the Ada compiler for Debian, which is part of the GNU Compiler Collection. Its enforces the same version for all Ada compilations, as described in the Debian Ada Policy.
