Ada 2012 Language Reference Manual

The documents on this page describe the 2012 revision to the Ada Standard, usually known as Ada 2012. The revisions were produced by the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22/WG 9 Ada Rapporteur Group (ARG), and have been published as the International Standard ISO/IEC 8652:2012(E). This document is often known as the Ada Reference Manual. Related documents are also found on this page. Notes: For most purposes, the consolidated Ada 2012 Reference Manual (see below), that includes the corrections of Technical Corrigendum 1, should be used rather than these documents. These documents are not an official publication or work product of the ARG, but rather are provided as a service to the Ada community.
The Ada 2012 consolidated standard (that is, with the corrections of Technical Corrigendum 1) is available here. The (now replaced) Ada 2005 consolidated standard is available here.
