Tecplot, Inc., the developer of Tecplot data visualization and technical plotting solutions, has released Tecplot Focus 2008, an all-purpose engineering plotting software. One of the more significant new features is Python scripting, which was created specifically for engineers who require additional analysis (FFTs, splines, statistical functions, etc.) or more scripting flexibility.
The company release says “Python is an open-source, object-oriented programming language that offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools and comes with extensive standard libraries. Tecplot Focus 2008 users can now leverage the extensive set of open-source libraries that are now available.”
Mike Peery, president and CEO of Tecplot, Inc. adds “Our support of the Python programming language enables our users to extend the software’s post-processing capabilities to meet their analysis requirements.”
