an integrated environment for FreeFEM
Antoine Le Hyaric, Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory.



FreeFEM-cs is an integrated environment for FreeFEM (a C++-like computer language dedicated to the finite element method, developed at the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory, Pierre and Marie Curie University). FreeFEM-cs provides an intuitive graphical interface to FreeFEM users.

FreeFEM-cs adds the following extra features to FreeFEM :

  • Integrated interface aimed at making users comfortable,
  • Color-coded editor,
  • Automatic highlighting of FreeFEM compilation errors, linked back to the EDP source code,
  • Integrated graphics area for 2d and 3d,
  • Online help including documentation in HTML.

FreeFEM-cs follows a client/server design : the client deals with user interaction, the server runs FreeFEM (hence its name : "cs" as in "Client and Server"). More details can be found in the Introduction to FreeFem++-cs.

The FreeFEM-cs licence is LGPL. I would also be grateful for using the following reference when describing work done with FreeFEM-cs :
