SoftIntegrations Ch 7.5 supports Raspberry Pi, Pi Zero, and ARM
SoftIntegration, Inc. has released the of Ch 7.5 and Embedded Ch 7.5 for ARM and Raspberry Pi. Ch is a complete cross-platform C/C++ interpreter as well as an embeddable scripting engine and can be embedded in other applications for scripting.

This latest release supports Raspberry Pi, Pi Zero, and ARM based single-board computers running Linux. The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost card-sized computer. With the user-friendly ChIDE, Ch enables people of all ages to explore computing with a cost-effective single-board computer. It can also be used in conjunction with UC Davis C-STEM Studio, a platform for hands-on integrated learning of computing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (C-STEM) with robotics.

Ch contains the following features for students to learn coding, math, and robotics.

- Cross-platform C/C++ interpreter

- Supports 1999 ISO C Standard (C99) and C++ classes.
With Ch SDK, functions in static or dynamic binary C/C++ libraries can be executed in Ch shell or script file.

- User-friendly integrated development environment (IDE)
ChIDE is efficient and lightweight. No need to create project or workspace to run your program. ChIDE is also the most effective IDE for instructors to make interactive classroom presentations to demonstrate different programming features and concepts, and respond to students' questions.

- Embeddable Scripting
Embedded Ch allows users to embed itself into C/C++ applications.

- 2D/3D plotting
It supports high-level C++ 2D/3D graphical plotting and visualization. Two and three dimensional graphical plots can be very easily accomplished.

- Numerical Computing
Ch numerical extensions are the best choice for numerical computing in the C/C++ domain. Ch has built-in type-generic mathematical functions and computational arrays for linear algebra and matrix computations. For example, linear system equation b = A*x can be written verbatim in Ch.

Pricing and availability

Ch and Embedded Ch for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris sparc, Solaris X64, HP-UX, FreeBSD and QNX Neutrino RTOS are available. Ch Professional Edition is $199 for commercial use and $129 for academic use. A teaching lab license is available. However, Ch for ARM and Raspberry Pi is free for non-commercial use (personal and educational use).
