Long-Awaited Ch version 3.0 for Mac OS X released
– C/C++ interpreter for Mac OS X released
DAVIS, Calif., September 10, 2002 – SoftIntegration, Inc., the leader of
scripting technology for ubiquitous computing, today announced the release
of Ch version 3.0 for Mac OS X. Ch is a superset of C/C++ interpreter. It
supports ISO C standard, C++ class, POSIX, GTK+, Win32, OpenGL, X/Motif and
socket/WinSock with over 8,000 functions.
Ch is an alternative to other scripting languages and mathematical software
packages. It can be used for automating repetitive tasks, shell
programming, regression and hardware testing, 2D/3D graphical plotting and
scientific numerical computing. Ch can interface with C/C++ libraries and
be embedded into other application programs.
“Ch for Mac OS X is a significant step towards rapid application
development and deployment across different platforms,” said Dr. Dawn
Cheng, General Manager at SoftIntegration. ” C/C++ programs can be
developed in one platform without tedious compile/link/debug cycles, and
run in all other major platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X,
Solaris, and HP-UX.”
Ch Standard Edition for Mac supports the ISO C standard (C90), major
features in C99 such as IEEE floating-point arithmetic, variable length
arrays (VLAs), complex numbers and type generic mathematical functions, C++
class and POSIX. Ch is also C compatible shell for shell programming and
system administration. Popular Unix commands such as awk and sed can be
easily used in the Ch scripts in the same manner as in Bash, csh and Perl.
Ch Professional Edition supports computational arrays and C LAPACK for
linear algebra and matrix computations, 2D/3D plotting and scientific
numerical computing with advanced high-level numerical functions for linear
systems, differential equation solving, integration, non-linear equations,
curve fitting, fast Fourier analysis, etc. For example, linear equation b =
A*x can be written verbatim in Ch.
Ch is also a very effective interactive environment for teaching and
learning programming in C/C++ with new features in the latest C99 standard.
Ch Standard Edition is free for academic and non-profit organizations. Many
toolkits for Ch 3.0 in Mac OS X, including OpenGL, X/Motif and CGI, will be
