SoftIntegration Joins MandrakeSoft Partner Program
DAVIS, Calif., September 12, 2002 -
SoftIntegration, Inc., the leader of
scripting technology for ubiquitous computing, today announced that MandrakeSoft,
a leading Linux provider, has chosen SoftIntegration(TM) Ch to run on
Mandrake Linux 9.0 as part of its partner program.
Ch 3.0 will be included in the commercial CD of every copy of
Mandrake Linux 9.0.
With this joint solution, SoftIntegration and MandrakeSoft are
providing a congenial computing environment for engineers and scientists, Web
programmers, C/C++ programmers, system
administrators, real-time programmers, quality analysts, and educators.
Linux users can benefit from SoftIntegration's C/C++ scripting
technology for cross platform rapid application development and deployment.
eliminates the lengthy compile/link/execute/debug cycles for application
development in C/C++.
It minimizes the number of programming languages that engineers have to
learn and program," said Dr. Dawn Cheng,
General Manager at SoftIntegration.
"Our partnership with MandrakeSoft can
greatly speed up application development and deployment."
"Ch is easy to use for rapid software development,"
said Yu Yu, Business Development Manager of MandrakeSoft.
"With integration of Mandrake Linux and Ch,
Linux users can now easily build software for Linux and share the code
across different platforms."
SoftIntegration Ch provides the following benefits
to software developers:
Ch Standard Edition is free for academic and non-profit organizations.
In addition to Linux,
Ch supports Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, and Mac OS X.
Scripting for automating repetitive tasks and rapid prototyping
Ch delivers a cross platform C interpreter.
It supports ISO C standard, C++
class, POSIX, GTK+, Win32, OpenGL, X/Motif and socket/WinSock with over 8,000 functions.
Easy interface with static/dynamical libraries.
Ch can access C/C++ static/dynamical libraries without
modification or re-compilation of applications and libraries.
There is no distinction between the interpreted and compiled code.
be embedded into application programs and hardware as a scripting engine.
Scientific numerical computing
Ch is the simplest possible solution for numerical computing
within the framework of C/C++.
Ch has rich features for scientific numerical computing
and visualization. It supports
ISO C standard (C99) numerical features such as IEEE
floating-point arithmetic, variable length arrays (VLAs), complex
numbers and type generic mathematical functions, as well as
computational arrays and C LAPACK for
linear algebra and matrix computations.
Unix/Windows shell programming
Ch is an interpretive implementation of C as Unix/Windows
command shell. Ch bridges the gap between C and Unix shell. Unix shell commands
such as grep, awk, and sed can run inside Ch shell in the same manner as in BASH and csh shells.
2D/3D graphical plotting
With built-in 2D/3D graphical support,
Ch Professional is the simplest possible solution for visualization within the framework of C/C++.
With SoftIntegration C++ graphical library,
the same code with graphical plotting can be compiled using a C++ compiler to run
across different platforms.
CGI programming in Ch provides user-friendly APIs for
web development. It is as easy to use as JSP and ASP.
Ch ODBC toolkit allows rapid integration of legacy systems with a Web server.
Ch can be used in either command shell or program mode interpretively.
An ideal solution for interactive teaching and student learning,
as well as for control of mechatronic systems.
