SoftIntegration, Inc. released Ch 4.0, the newest version of C/C++
interpreter for cross-platform scripting, 2D/3D plotting, numerical
computing, shell programming and embedded scripting.

Major product enhancements include shell programming, computational
array for numerical computing and bug fixes. Ch standard Edition is
now free for commercial and non-commercial use.

Here is information about Ch.

* C/C++ interpreter

Ch supports 1999 ISO C Standard (C99), C++ classes. Ch also supports
many industry standards with over 8,000 functions including POSIX,
socket/Winsock, X11/Motif, OpenGL, ODBC, C LAPACK, GTK+, Win32, and

Functions in static or dynamical binary C/C++ libraries can be
executed interpretively in scripting without re-compilation using Ch

* 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
mathematical 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. For
example, a Control System Toolkit for design and analysis of linear
time-invariant control systems developed in Ch is available.

* Embeddable scripting

Ch 4.0 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

* Third party software support

Ch supports an increasing number of third party software applications.
It includes Ch Control toolbox, Ch NAG Statistics Package, Ch CGI
toolbox, Ch ODBC toolbox, Intel OpenCV for computer vision and image
processing, National Instruments' data acquisition toolkit NI-DAQ and
motion control toolkit NI-Motion, Barret Technology's Barret Hand
robotic manipulator control, and Perl Compatible Regular Expressions.

Pricing and Availability

Ch for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and HP-UX is available. Ch
Standard Edition is now free for both commercial and non-commercial
uses in all platforms. Ch Professional Edition is free for academic
use and costs $399 for personal or commercial use.
