Glish is currently used primarily for data analysis and telescope control. It is a cornerstone of the data analysis system called AIPS++. This system uses Glish for control and communication. The compute tasks are written in C++ and connected to the interpreter via the "software bus". Glish is also the command line interface for AIPS++, and from it, users can combine computing elements to fit their needs. In addition, most simple graphical user interface (GUI) elements are implemented using a Tk addition to Glish. This addition allows users to control the GUI and the application within the same event-oriented scripting language.
Glish was originally developed for the Superconducting Super Collider by Vern Paxson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Chris Saltmarsh (email@example.com) at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. Since 1995, Glish has been maintained and developed by Darrell Schiebel at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory as part of the AIPS++ project.
