Maplesoft announces a new integrated development environment for the Maple programming language that improves productivity by providing advanced tools for writing and managing Maple projects.
The newest member of the Maple product family, the Maple IDE, powered by DigiArea, Inc. is based on the Eclipse platform and offers a customised industry-standard environment for medium- to large-scale Maple development projects.
The Maple language provides built-in knowledge of mathematical data structures and concepts, support for writing multi-threaded, parallel programs as well as a very rich library of existing commands and algorithms. Over 90% of the algorithms built into Maple have been implemented using the Maple programming language, which is also available to any Maple user for writing scripts, implementing new algorithms and extending the Maple system. The Maple IDE makes it dramatically easier for Maple users to create, manage and update libraries of Maple code.
Dr Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft comments that the Maple IDE provides a powerful familiar environment for seasoned programmers, while giving new programmers valuable assistance in getting started.
According to Oleksandr Shkliaiev, President, DigiArea, working with Maple IDE will put a beginner on the path to learning the Maple language faster, while advanced developers will find a full range of tools for professional Maple programming.
Key features of the Maple IDE include the ability to quickly browse and search through source hierarchies, automatic highlighting and formatting based on syntactic and semantic properties of the code, navigation, testing and much more.
The Maple IDE assists developers in writing, updating, maintaining and understanding code, so projects can be completed faster with fewer errors, and later enhancements can be made more easily.
