open source high productivity langauges
High productivity languages have recently become an important part of scientific computing and visualization both within and outside the Department of Defense (DoD). Leading high productivity languages include the commercially available MATLAB, open source Python (with its scientific computing add-ons) and open source Octave. Each of these high productivity languages forms an integral part of a standard library that includes text processing, file I/O, data compression, and a host of capabilities ranging from basic numerical linear algebra to complex data visualization.
The main objective of this policy is to provide the following common open source high productivity languages environment across all six DSRCs within the HPCMP:
Python (General Purpose Scripting Language)
