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 GNU General Public License, GPS is free software.


GPS supports a variety of programming languages other than Ada, including C, JavaScript, Pascal and Python. In addition, it supports a number of other file types for build systems such as Autoconf and Make, along with documentation formats like Changelog and Texinfo.

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.[1]

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.

GPS uses Python as a scripting language.
