1. Introducing Shen Professional
Shen Professional (SP) is a graphical cloud based implementation of Shen with type secure concurrent programming, web connection, an extensive library of utility functions, and graphics. Everything is a click away.. Every month new packages appear and the code base is refined. The documentation is growing continuously. All this happens without the user having to reinstall software. There is direct email support for SP with a fast turnaround time. Our latest release is SP 24.01.
2. What's In SP?
A programmable IDE giving click access to Shen facilities like tracing.
An inbuilt maths library offering higher-order constructions like mathematical series, provision for FOR statements, as well as radix conversion, and rational and complex numbers.
A sequence library of functions for lists, vectors and tuples. The vector library allows easy handling of vector programs through an extended notation.
Provision for OS independent file handling for very large files.
A calendar program.
Type secure graphics.
An optimising compiler that can double the speed of some Shen programs.
Concurrent programming with built-in functions for parallel AND/OR and parallel strict application.
A version of Shen-YACC that can generate type secure code.
Communication to the web; SP can read web pages.
3. The SP Handbook
This information is now written into The SP Handbook 2018 which comes free with SP.
The Shen Professional Handbook is a complete guide to the cloud based implementation of Shen.
The handbook covers the use and programming of the SP graphical interface, maths, string and vector libraries, file handling, pretty printing, compiler optimisation, graphical and parallel programming.
