SoftIntegration Ch 3.5 Now Available
DAVIS, Calif., Jan 21, 2003 -
SoftIntegration, Inc. today announced the availability of Ch 3.5, the newest version of C/C++ interpreter for cross platform scripting,
2D/3D plotting, shell programming and numerical computing.
Ch 3.5 continues SoftIntegration's leadership in scripting, 2D/3D plotting
and numerical computing. Major product enhancements include
command line editing in Ch shell and more advanced scripting features for
shell programming and numerical computing.
"SoftIntegration Ch provides an unmatched level of power and flexibility in
powerful C/C++ scripting," said Dr. Dawn Cheng, General Manager at SoftIntegration.
"We are delivering the most robust and
feature-packed scripting technology."
Ch supports 1990 ISO C Standard (C90),
major features in C99, classes in C++.
Ch also supports many Industry standard and third party software packages
with over 8,000 functions
including POSIX, X11/Motif, OpenGL, ODBC,
XML, GTK+, Win32, CGI, socket/Winsock, Intel OpenCV and National
Instrument's Data Acquisition toolkit NI-DAQ.
Ch is also a very effective interactive environment
for teaching and learning programming in C/C++ with new features in the
latest C99 standard.
Shell programming and cross-platform scripting
Ch shell is C compatible shell while C-shell (csh) is a C like
shell. Ch is an interpretive implementation of C,
similar to Unix/MS-DOS shells. Ch in Windows includes over
100 commonly-used Unix commands for portable shell programming.
Ch can also be used as a login shell just like sh, csh and ksh.
Ch bridges the gap between the C language and shell languages.
With its built-in string type and many enhanced scripting features,
Ch is an alternative to other scripting languages for
automating repetitive tasks, regression test, and hardware testing.
2D/3D plotting and numerical computing
Ch supports 2D/3D graphical plotting, C LAPACK, high level numeric functions.
Ch has built-in 2D/3D plotting support, generic mathematic
functions and computational arrays for linear algebra and matrix
computations, and advanced high-level numerical functions
for linear systems, differential equation solving, integration,
non-linear equations, Fourier analysis, curve fitting, etc. For
example, linear system equation b = A*x can be written verbatim in Ch.
Its numerical extensions to C makes Ch the best choice for numerical
computing in C/C++ domain.
With SoftIntegration graphical library (SIGL), the same
program using 2D/3D plotting features can be executed in Ch
or compiled using C++ compilers without any modification.
Ch 3.5 is optimized for embedded scripting.
Embedded Ch allows users to embed or plugin Ch into other
C/C++ application programs and hardware. It is ideal for open-architecture application integration. With Embedded Ch, C/C++ applications can be extended with all features of Ch. Embedded Ch has a small footprint. The pointer and time deterministic nature of the C language provides a perfect interface with hardware in real-time systems.
