Crunching Numbers With Applescript
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.
