Abstract : Several standard benchmarks were implemented in order to study the real-time performance of the Alsys 037 Ada Compiler for the Inmos T800 Transputer. A limited comparison to the Transputer's native language, Occam, was possible. The key aspects that were investigated were the computational speed, using the Whetstone benchmark, the clock resolution, delay resolution, procedure call overhead and general performance. These were measured using the Performance Issues Working Group (PWIG) test suite. The Whetstone benchmark was implemented on the T800 in both Ada and Occam, making this measurement the most informative.
