Ada vs C, Which Programming Language is Best

#Ada vs #C, Which #Programming #Language is Best

C and Ada have gone through various updates since their inception. I’ll use the most recent version of each standard—C 111 and Ada 20122—as the basis for the comparison. These reflect how the languages are evolving to meet current and future technological trends and challenges, even though at present it’s more typical to find earlier versions of the languages in use.
