FreeFem++ is a programming language and a software focused in solving partial differential equations using the finite element method. FreeFem++ is written in C++ and developed and maintained by Université Pierre et Marie Curie and Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions. It runs on Linux, Solaris, macOS and MS Windows systems. FreeFem++ is free software (GPL).,
FreeFem++ language is inspired by C++. There is an IDE called FreeFem++-cs.
The first version was created in 1987 by Olivier Pironneau, and it was named MacFem (it only worked on Macintosh); PCFem appeared some time later. Both were written in Pascal.
In 1992 it was re-written in C++ and it was named FreeFem. Later versions, FreeFem+ (1996) and FreeFem++ (1998) used that programming language too.
