I
High-level computer programming language whose development was initiated in 1975 by the U.S. Dept.

of Defense and standardized in 1983. Ada (named for the countess of Lovelace) was intended to be a common language for use on the department's computers, which were produced by many different manufacturers. It is similar to Pascal but contains many additional features convenient for the development of large-scale, multiplatform programs. The 1995 revision, called Ada 95, supports object-oriented programming.

      city, seat (1907) of Pontotoc county, south-central Oklahoma, U.S. It lies along Clear Boggy Creek, south of the Canadian River, and was named for the daughter of the first postmaster, William J. Reed, who built a log store there in 1889. The railroad arrived in 1900, and the city developed as a marketing and trading centre for a large cattle and grain area. The discovery of oil in the vicinity contributed to Ada's economic growth. Fine silica sand and limestone quarries nearby provide the raw materials for glass and cement industries, and clay from Ada was the first clay used to create Frankoma pottery. Plastics, auto parts, farm implements, and clothing are also manufactured. The large Fitts Oil Field and the Robert S. Kerr Water Research Center are south of the city. Ada is the seat of East Central University (1909) and the administrative headquarters of the Chickasaw Indians. Inc. 1901. Pop. (1990) 15,820; (2000) 15,691.
