Freeode Publisher's description
from Eike Welk
The Freeode project provides a simple programming language, to numerically solve differential equations. The compiler produces source code in the interpreted language Python, that performs the numerical computations. Both dynamic and steady state simulations can be done. The SciPy and NumPy libraries are used for the numerical computations. Currently only ODE can be solved.
The generated Python code can be used as a stand-dalone program, or in an interactive Python session. Especially can the generated Python objects be used as building blocks of more complex programs. The programmer is freed from the relatively mechanical task of implementing the simulation function, and can concentrate on the higher level aspects of the problem.
Python promises to be highly platform independent. Therfore everything should work on Windows exactly as it works on Linux.
What's New in This Release:В· This release brings a new architecture: Siml is now a real object oriented language, with static typing. The syntax is now whitespace sensitive: indentation creates blocks, like in Python.
В· The release brings no real new features, but it is a good base for further development.
В· The code execution at compile time, is now considered to be macro execution, similar to Scheme or D. At compile time Siml classes are now Python classes. This implies that Siml instances are now regular Python objects. This makes the code more simple but somewhat quirky, because more advanced features of Python have to be used. (Siml functions, for example, have to be descriptors.)
В· A program is still compiled into an imperative style Python program, with only floating point numbers, strings, and booleans.
В· The compiler is still beta quality, it can quite easily be tricked into erroneous behavior.
System Requirements:В· Python
