Obviousely you are trying to start a flame here.

So I assume that you've already made changes/additions to DDD if you are
already thinking about this possibility.
I won't say that installing a compiler is trivial, and that making changes
to a code depends more on the quality of the code than on the language used,
but for your information, incorporating C code with Ada code is trivial.

Obviousely you do not know Ada, since it is far from dead.

To write software more rapidly and that is more reliable ?

Anyway, one needs to know a language to talk about it, so I'll stop here.
