Simulation Engine and API
Our Cell Matrix simulators come in several flavors. The flavorings are
mostly to do with the kind of interface they provide you with. One is a
graphical tool that lets you do things like point to a cell with your mouse and see
graphical output when the simulator is running. Another that we will soon
provide you with provides a command-line interface. Underneath all of these
interfaces is what we call the Cell Matrix Simulation Engine. Used
appropriately, this engine simulates the functional behavior of Cell Matrix hardware
at a cellular level. With direct access to those functions and an
understanding of how to use them, you can write your own programs and
interfaces to suit your project.
This is Version 1.0, for the Linux operating
system, no warranties, use at your own risk. It is intended for noncommercial use only, for such activities
development, and self-edification. Contact
us if you need a commercial license to use this tool (
cmsupport2 (a.t.) cellmatrix (d-o-t) com).
Once we receive your request, we will email you the zip file. Put the file where you want it, then use unzip
to decompress it. It has a
linkable library in a Linux-friendly format (cellmatrix.ar), plus the API,
plus a license, plus some sample programs for you to start with. Start by
looking at the file README.txt
Everyone who obtains a copy of the API and
Simulation Engine who wishes to know of changes will be contacted via email
when anything is significantly changed or improved (new functions, new
platforms it will run on, etc).
Send email to
api (a.t.) cellmatrix (d.o.t.) com if you run into any problems or if
there are functions you need that are not currently present in the API. If
you are interested in forming a discussion group about Cell Matrix API-related work,
let us know.
