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");
