[Frama-c-discuss] Frama-C vs Ada/SPARK

Hi everybody, 

I am not very familiar with either Frama-C or Ada/SPARK. I am wondering whether anyone in the list would be able to comment on how they compare against each other. It seems as though Frama-C has a stronger focus on mathematic proofs whereas SPARK is more like an static analyzer. Although I have never written any Ada code, I reckon the task of proving the correctness of Ada code is easier than C code - particularly in the case of SPARK since only a subset of Ada is allowed. 

Has anyone used/compared both? Can you comment on it?
