Many scripting languages have claimed that their syntax resembles C or C++, but they are not C or C++. Their coding style and syntax are different from C/C++. Ch is an embeddable interpreter that provides a superset of C with salient extensions. It parses and executes C code directly without intermediate code or byte code. It does not distinguish interpreted code from compiled C/C++ code. Ch is the most complete C interpreter and C virtual machine in existence. Ch is embeddable in other application programs and hardware.
Ch supports ISO C standard (C90), major new features in C99, classes in C++, POSIX, X/Motif, Windows, OpenGL, ODBC, GTK+, C LAPACK, CGI, XML, 2D/3D graphical plotting, advanced numerical computing, and shell programming. In the same time, Ch offers many salient features from other software packages and languages.
C is for low-level system programming and embedded systems; C++ for large-scale projects; Ch for platform-independent script computing. C/Ch/C++ allow users to use one language, anywhere and everywhere, for any programming tasks.
If your applications need high performance, you can deploy and compile your code as native code with a C/C++ compiler. For rapid application development, fast time-to-market, and running across platform without tedious compile/link cycles, Ch will be the best choice. Ch is optimal for numerical computing and visualization, embedded scripting, Web programming and plotting, safe network computing, shell programming, integration with legacy systems, integration and control of mechatronic systems, and teaching and learning.
Ch allows you to write C/C++ code once in one platform, run it in all other platforms including Windows, Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, HP-UX, FreeBSD and QNX.
Ch Student Edition contains all features in Ch Professional Edition, except that it includes SoftIntegration Graphical Library (SIGL); a plot generated by Ch Student Edition will display "This plot is generated by Ch Student Edition" in the x-label in a separate line; and the total number of elements of an array is limited to 20,000.
Note: Ch Student Edition is for a single user on a single machine. To qualify for Student Edition, you must be a registered student of an educational institution (K-12, junior college, college). The product can be downloaded and use freely, but it must be restricted to use in conjunction with classes in an institution.
