Mission

The goal of this project is to raise the abstraction in Ada programs above the level of arrays and simple linked lists.

Charles is a container and algorithms library based in the C++ STL. It is general, flexible, and efficient, and its design has been guided by the philosophy that a library should stay out of the programmer's way.

The library comprises sequence containers and associative containers. Sequence containers include vectors, deques, and lists. The associative containers include sets, multisets, maps, and multimaps.
