Learning Ada

I'm getting the opportunity to do some work in ada so I'll note some things I've learned as I go along, they may be common knowledge to some people, but they're new to me as I am learning.

Yesterday I learned how to declare a record and how to assign values to the items in the record, there are 2 ways (that I currently know of).

Pertaining to a record that contains the items animal and fish:

1. Assign individually:
     Albuquerque.animal := ("cow");
     Albuquerque.fish := ("trout");

2. Assign them as a group:
      Albuquerque := (animal => "cow", fish => "trout");
