[prMac.com] Brighton, United Kingdom - YAWMOO Limited is pleased to announce that CPPlay 1.1 for the Mac, its C/C++ interpreted environment with OpenGL integration, has become the top developer tool on the Mac App Store in Austria. CPPlay allows developers to enter code and immediately see the results, much like Apple's Swift Playground feature in Xcode. Forget edit/compile/link/run cycles. Just edit the code and then press the Run button.
"I am pleased and excited about this. I put a lot of effort in conceiving and writing CPPlay, working in the evenings and weekends," said Alessandro Pistocchi, developer of CPPlay. "I have daytime duties as a software developer, so I cannot dedicate as much time as I would want to developing CPPlay. I never thought I could get this kind of response. I guess that the hard work is starting to show its fruits."
* Uses an interpreter in place of a compiler to run code instantly
* Allows C and C++ developers to avoid lengthy compiling sessions during testing
* Enter your code, immediately see the result
* Swift-like Playground capabilities for C and C++ code
* Totally customizable environment. See what you want, where you want
* Windowed environment allows viewing of source code, the console, notes, and web-based information
* CPPlay allows you to call standard library code, OpenGL and OpenAL code
"CPPlay is going to continue to evolve as a development environment. I really do believe that interpreters are great developer tools when it comes to learning and being creative. Today's compilers tend to be focused on producing final products and they are getting better and better for that. However I think in computers we lost that immediate feedback loop that allowed us to just be creative and have fun," continued Pistocchi. "It is similar to painting. You enjoy a studio with all the right tools and a huge canvas but you also need the random pencil and notebook to take with you everywhere and sketch something with. CPPlay represents that. I hope people CPPlay will help people learn to have fun with computer programming again."
* OS X 10.10 Yosemite or later
* 64-bit Intel processor
* Requires Xcode and Xcode command line tools
