Hi XT,

Ada is a pascal like language, though it has progressed way, way past that one.
OOP = Object Oriented Programming. This is quite different to the "old" way of doing things. If you really want to do some programming, first get a book on object oriented techniques.

A framework is akin to a library, only much, much more powerful. If one develops using OOP and a framework, you can mostly create an application (that prints a window containing "Hello World") with as little as one line of code. (Or as with the Cocoa framework, even without a line of code). And it will still be a fully fledged application with all the window handling you have come to expect of the current day applications.

OK, this is OT, so I'll stop it here.
If you like to know more still, PM me.

Best,
Rien.
