Tela Features

For version 1.23 and later

Tela (TEnsor LAnguage) is a scientific computing language and environment. It is mainly targeted for prototyping large-scale numerical simulations and doing pre- and postprocessing for them, and it replaces a compiled language like C++ or Fortran in this respect. The feature set is therefore biased to operations needed in partial differential equation solvers. A relatively complete graphics is included via a separate program (PlotMTV). Even though Tela is mainly a prototyping and development environment, modest-size 2D simulations can be run in modern (1994) desktop workstations while preserving "interactive" response times. Only large 2D or 3D simulations must usually be coded in C or Fortran and run on supercomputers.
