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:

Win-SiMPLE Modules

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.

To "download" any one of the task/function modules from our Online SiMPLE Module Library into your Global Append Library, all you have to do is once again Copy & Paste the module's source listing. But now, you would open your Global Append Library folder (located on your root directory), open the "Win" folder in that folder, and then Paste the source listing into that "Win" folder.


Example

Suppose you wanted to download the "teddy" module and place it into your Local 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 (with either an uppercase "T" or a lowercase "t") in your project folder's Local Append Library folder:

If you wanted to place the "teddy" module into your Global Append Library instead of your Local Append Library (if it's not already in your Global Append Library), just open your Global Append Library folder (located on your root directory), and then open the "Win" folder in that folder, and then paste the source listing into a new "Teddy" text document (with either an uppercase "T" or a lowercase "t") in that "Win" folder:

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".)
