GNAT Programming Studio (GPS, formerly known as the GNAT Programming System) is a free multi-language integrated development environment (IDE) by AdaCore. GPS uses compilers from the GNU Compiler Collection, taking its name from GNAT, the GNU compiler for the Ada programming language.
GPS is cross-platform, running on Linux, FreeBSD, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Solaris. GPS uses GTK+ as the widget toolkit for its graphical user interface. Released under the GNAT Modified General Public License, GPS is free software.
The most interesting new development function of GPS from version 4.0 are remote edit, remote debug and cross-compilation capabilities for platforms for which GPS/GCC are not natively available.
The new version also includes new edit functions, among which is an intelligent autocomplete feature.
GPS supports the following Version control systems: CVS, Rational ClearCase, Subversion, git.
GPS can edit files encoded in all GNAT supported encoding schemas. In detail: ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-2, ISO-8859-5, ISO-8859-6, ISO-8859-7, KOI8-R, Shift JIS, GB2312, UTF-8, UTF-16 and UTF-32.
