Softintegration releases C/C++ interpreter Ch 7.5 for ARM, Raspberry Pi, and Pi Zero
for learning coding, robotics, and math
DAVIS, California, January 3, 2017 -
SoftIntegration, Inc. today announced the availability of Ch 7.5 and Embedded Ch 7.5 for ARM and Raspberry Pi. Ch is the most complete cross-platform C/C++ interpreter.
Ch is also an embeddable cross-platform scripting engine and can be embedded in other applications for scripting.
This latest release of Ch supports Raspberry Pi, Pi Zero, and
ARM based single-board computers running Linux.
The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost card-sized computer.
With the user-friendly ChIDE, Ch enables people of all ages to
explore computing with a cost-effective single-board computer.
Ch can also be used in conjunction with
C-STEM Studio, a platform for hands-on integrated learning of computing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (C-STEM) with robotics.
Ch Professional for ARM and Raspberry Pi is free for non-commercial use.
Running a program from ChIDE with graphical output in Raspberry Pi.
Ch contains the following salient features for students to learn coding,
math, and robotics as well as for developers to contribute to the system and for embedded scripting.
Cross-platform C/C++ interpreter
Ch supports 1999 ISO C Standard (C99) and C++ classes. Ch also supports
many industry standards including POSIX,
socket/Winsock, X11/Motif, OpenGL, ODBC, C LAPACK, GTK+, Win32, and
functions in static or dynamic binary C/C++ libraries can be executed
in Ch shell or script file.
User-friendly integrated development environment (IDE)
ChIDE is efficient and lightweight. No need to create project or workspace to run your program. ChIDE is also the most effective IDE for instructors to make interactive classroom presentations to demonstrate different programming features and concepts, and respond to students' questions.
Embedded Ch allows users to embed Ch into C/C++ application such as
game, semiconductor ATE, SoC, CAM, IC, PCB, RF, MEMS, LED as a scripting
engine. Embedded Ch supports multi-threading and debug.
C/C++ applications can be extended with all features of Ch
scripting. It has a small footprint. The pointer and time deterministic
nature of the C language provides a perfect interface
in real-time systems.
Shell programming and cross-platform scripting
Ch bridges the gap between the C language and shell languages. It is a genuine
C shell -- C compatible shell.
Ch is an interpretive implementation of C, similar to Unix/MS-DOS shells.
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.
Ch supports high-level C++ 2D/3D graphical plotting and visualization.
Two and three dimensional graphical plots can be very easily accomplished.
With SoftIntegration graphical library (SIGL), the same
program using 2D/3D plotting features can be executed in Ch
or compiled using C++ compilers.
Ch numerical extensions are the best choice for numerical computing in
the C/C++ domain.
Ch has built-in type-generic mathematical
functions and computational arrays for linear algebra and matrix
It contains 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.
Ch supports C LAPACK,
GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library, and
GNU Scientific Library.
Ch toolkits and third party software support
Ch is ideal for rapid application development and deployment.
Ch supports an increasing number of third party software applications. It includes Ch Control toolkit, Ch Mechanism Toolkit, Ch NAG Statistics Package, Ch CGI toolkit, Ch ODBC toolkit, Ch XML toolkit, ChExcel for manipulating Microsoft Excel in C/C++ scripts,
Intel OpenCV for computer vision, ImageMagick for
image processing, National Instruments' data acquisition toolkit NI-DAQ and motion control toolkit NI-Motion.
Pricing and Availability
Ch and Embedded Ch for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X,
Solaris sparc, Solaris X64, HP-UX,
FreeBSD and QNX Neutrino RTOS are available.
Ch Professional Edition is $199 for commercial use and $129 for academic use.
A teaching lab license is available.
However, Ch for ARM and Raspberry Pi is free for non-commercial use (personal and educational use).
