Seed7 is a general purpose programming language.
It is a higher level language compared to Ada,
C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and
operators can be declared easily. Functions with
type results and type parameters are more elegant
than a template or generics concept. Object
orientation is used when it brings advantages and
not in places when other solutions are more
obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts
of other programming languages, it is generally
not considered as a direct descendant of any other
Project Release infomations and Project Resources. Note that these informations are from this projects Freecode.com page and the downloads themselves may not be hosted with SourceForge.JP.
Man pages for the Seed7 interpreter and compiler have been added. The makefiles have been improved to support the targets distclean and test. The operators radix and RADIX have been added to integer.s7i and bigint.s7i. Checks for the operators radix and RADIX have been added to chkint.sd7. Errors in bas7.sd7, concerning the function VARPTR and the statement OPEN, have been fixed. The function getLineWithMacrosApplied in makedata.s7i has been improved. The currency sign character has been added to several fonts. A check for an overflow of a cast from float to int has been added to chkccomp.c.
Minor feature and documentation enhancements
New options have been added to the interpreter and compiler. Additional parse and execute functions have been added to progs.s7i. The library gzip.s7c has been improved to decode blocks with fixed Huffman codes. Support for bigInteger literals with bases other than 10 has been added. The str functions have been changed such that str(48879, 16) returns "beef". The program make7.sd7 has been improved to support multiple targets and the option -C. The handling of floating point divisions in the compiler has been improved. The makefile mk_clang.mak has been added to support the clang C compiler.
Major feature and documentation enhancements
The Seed7 compiler was renamed to s7c. The program make7.sd7 was improved to allow macros in the command line. The libraries makedata.s7i and make.s7i were improved. A variant of the function popen was added to shell.s7i. The difference between & and <& was explained in the FAQ. The program tar7.sd7 was improved to accept DOS paths for all file arguments. Documentation comments were added to several files. The graphic drivers were improved to exit a program when the close button (X) is pressed. The makefiles were improved such that 'make s7c' generates an executable of the Seed7 compiler.
