The CH programming language is designed to be a superset of C. CH bridges the gap between C and FORTRAN; it encompasses all the programming capabilities of FORTRAN 77 and consists of features of many other programming languages and software packages. Unlike other general-purpose programming languages, CH is designed to be especially suitable for applications in mechanical systems engineering. Because of our research interests, many programming features in CH have been implemented for design automation, although they are useful in other applications as well. In this paper we will describe these new programming features for design automation, as they are currently implemented in CH in comparison with C and FORTRAN 77.
