SoftIntegration Ch 3.7 Now Available

DAVIS, Calif., June 4, 2003 - SoftIntegration, Inc. today announced the availability of Ch 3.7, the newest version of C/C++ interpreter for cross-platform scripting, 2D/3D plotting, numerical computing, shell programming and embedded scripting.

Ch 3.7 continues SoftIntegration's leadership in scripting, 2D/3D plotting and numerical computing. Major product enhancements include C99 features, computational array for numerical computing and bug fixes.

"SoftIntegration Ch provides an unmatched level of power and flexibility in powerful C/C++ scripting," said Dr. Dawn Cheng, President at SoftIntegration. "We are delivering the most robust and feature-packed scripting technology."

C/C++ interpreter

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, socket/Winsock, X11/Motif, OpenGL, ODBC, C LAPACK, GTK+, Win32, CGI, Intel OpenCV and National Instrument's Data Acquisition toolkit NI-DAQ and NI-Motion.

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 with direct interface to hardware.

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 is ideal for rapid application development and deployment.

Embeddable scripting

Ch 3.7 is optimized for embedded scripting. Embedded Ch allows users to embed 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. It allows execution of C/C++ scripts generated dynamically on-line. 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.

Pricing and Availability

Ch for Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X and HP-UX is available. Ch Standard Edition version 3.7 for Unix, Linux and Mac OS X is free for personal, academic and commercial use. Ch Standard Edition 3.7 for Windows costs $69. Ch Professional Edition costs $599. The academic and volume discount are available.
