- This zip file is a compressed version of the GNAT compiler and tools.
You need to extract the files from this zip file. To do so requires
a program such as PowerArchiver (freeware) or 7-zip (freeware) or Winzip
(commercial). You probably already have such an extraction
program on your computer - try right clicking on the zip file and select
- After running your
extraction program you will have a folder called x86-windows.
Within that folder is a folder called adagpl-2014. Within that
folder is a folder called gnatgpl. Within the folder
is the executable file gnat-gpl-2013-i686-pc-mingw32-bin.exe. Double
click on this exe file to install the GNAT compiler and an integrated
development environment called GPS. We will not be using GPS in this
course. Do not check the box labeled Install
for all users. Accept all the suggested file locations.
