Long-Awaited Ch version 3.0 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 system administrators to automate tasks, QA engineers for regression and hardware testing, 2D/3D graphical plotting and scientific numerical computing. Ch can interface with C/C++ libraries and be embedded in 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 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 released soon.
