Applescript can be great for automating tasks, gluing applications together, or for extending the functionality of existing applications, however it rarely comes to mind when one thinks about developing number-crunching analytical code. Satimage, the makers of SmileLab, have released Numerics.osax, an AppleScript plugin that provides a suite of computational and mathematics facilities including: Linear algebra, Signal processing (FFT and convolution), Image files, 3D array handling, and handling of numerical data files. Numerics.osax is available as a free download independent of the commercial SmileLab application. You can read more about Numerics.osax in the latest Numerics.osax README. Numerics.osax can be downloaded from the Satimage scientific osax extensions page.
