Ada is a computer language developed originally for DOD contracts. It has rather a lot of features.
During early development, the language was called Green. It is now named after Augusta Ada King[L1 ], Countess Lovelace, (it is most definitely not an acronym) who was AIUI a female mathematician in the 19th century. She was a daughter of the mathematician Annabella Milbanke, Baroness Wenthworth, and George Gordon, Lord Byron, (the poet, who Ada never met) and was a collaborator of Charles Babbage; her work on his Analytical Engine (? - not the Difference Engine but the successor machine) has made her generally accepted as being the world's first computer programmer.

Visual Ada Developer (a Tcl/Tk oriented Ada-95 GUI builder): http://users1.jabry.com/adastudio/index.html The GPLed VAD [L2 ] Leonid Dulman updated in mid-2006 includes a "Tcl script generator", and appears to be compatible with both 8.5 and 8.6. His Ada Developer Studio also interfaces to Qt, which has a very slender Tcl connection.
