A wrapper generation tool for the creation of scriptable scientific applications
In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the use of scripting languages as a mechanism for controlling and developing scientific software. Scripting languages allow scientific applications to be encapsulated in an interpreted environment similar to that found in commercial scientific packages such as MATLAB, Mathematica, and IDL. This improves the usability of scientific software by providing a powerful meachanism for specifyling and controlling cimplex problems as well as giving users an interactive and exploratory problem solving environment. Scripting languages also provide a framework for building and integrating software components that allows tools be used in a more efficient manner. This streamlines the problem solving process and enable scientists to be more productive.
