The LDPL Standard Library
This repository contains the LDPL Standard Library, a collection of LDPL libraries that contain many useful pre-written statements for the LDPL Programming Language that are not included in the base language.
The library is organized in a series of
.ldpl files lovingly called briefcases
(this is a very serious language, you know, we have ties) each containing new statements
designed to extend the functionality of LDPL in many areas. In simpler terms, designed
to make your life as an LDPL programmer easier. For example the
includes many statements designed for working with LIST values, like
FLIP LIST and
SORT LIST - ASCENDING.
New statements and entire briefcases are very welcome contributions, corrections and feedback are most certainly welcome as well.
How to use the LDPL Standard Library
Most of the time you won't need the entire Standard Library for a single project, so you can just get the briefcases you are going to use. You can do this by hand or using LPM (the LDPL Package Manager).
📦 Installing a briefcase using LPM
Open a terminal and write
lpm install <briefcase-name> to install the desired briefcase.
Available briefcases are
std-list (list statements),
std-math (math statements),
std-text (text statements),
std-os (operating system functions) and
number generation and statements).
lpm install std-random.
To include the downloaded briefcase in your project add the line
USING PACKAGE <briefcase-name>
USING PACKAGE std-random.
✋🏻 Installing a briefcase by hand
Just download the briefcase you want and include it in your LDPL source file.
For example, if you want to include the file
std-lists.ldpl you should add
Statements included in each briefcase
Every statement is documented in more detail within its own briefcase file.
