Append Libraries provide a convenient way of endlessly expanding SiMPLE's functionality. If you are already using SiMPLE, you are familiar with at least one Append Library (i.e., the "toys" library, which contains modules that let you draw rockets, create explosions, etc.). By downloading and using other modules from our Online SiMPLE Module Library, you can start doing even more cool things in your programs.
Here is a list of the modules that are currently available in the Online SiMPLE Module Library:
How to Download a Module
To "download" any one of the task/function modules from our Online SiMPLE Module Library into your Local Append Library, all you have to do is Copy & Paste the module's source listing (just like you would do if you wanted to "download" a program from our Program Gallery). But instead of running the source listing, you would place it directly into your Local Append Library folder. After the module has been placed into your Local Append Library, you can either just leave it there, or you can transfer it into your Global Append Library (depending on how you plan to use the module).
Suppose you wanted to download the "teddy" module and place it into your Global Append Library. You would first go to the "teddy" homepage (by clicking the "teddy" link in the above list of module names). On that homepage you would find the module's source listing displayed inside a light blue box labeled "Module Source Listing". Just copy & paste that source listing into a new "teddy" text document in your project folder's Local Append Library folder):
Next you would transfer the "teddy" module from your project folder's Local Append library into your Global Append Library (by dropping the "teddy" module onto the "Librarian" program):
The "teddy" module would now be a part of your Global Append Library, and you could use the module in any of your programs:
(Notice that a module's name is not necessarily the same as any of the tasks that it contains. In the above example, the module's name is "teddy". But the only task in the "teddy" module is a task named "teddy bear".)
Are you sure that your copy of SiMPLE is up-to-date?
Remember to Update it regularly!
(It's fast, and very easy to do!)
