Finesse is a stand-alone executable written in C. It is, however,
well interfaced with MATLAB. A number of MATLAB tools (m files and
mex files) are provided to run Finesse simulations from MATLAB or
to communicate with a running Finesse process from within MATLAB.

PyKat (http://www.gwoptics.org/pykat/) is available to interact
with Finesse from Python.
