Libraries Libraries make it possible to extend the command set of Omikron Basic in any way the user desires. Libraries can be loaded and merged subsequently from the editor and require only a single line in the program. Generally, a library consists of a collection of procedures and functions, which were programmed for a specific task.
Because the libraries are already coded in Omikron Basic token code, they do not have to be linked at compilation time in a time consuming process. So, even if you have merged several libraries, the compilation will nevertheless take only a few seconds.
The following four libraries are available:


EasyGem Library

Professional User Interfaces for Omikron Basic Programs.
Using the EasyGem Library it is easy to create a user interface for a program. Simply insert the corresponding commands for menus, dialog boxes, and windows into the text of the program. In this case, the EasyGem Library undertakes the greatest part of the management task of these structures. Thus, the user does not need to create any resource files and/or event handlers.

Complex Library

Professional Complex Number Calculation.
Physicists, electrical and other engineers require complex numbers, because many problems can be calculated much more easily and elegantly on the body of the complex numbers than with real numbers.

Statistic Library

Professional Data Analysis with the Statistic Library.
Almost everybody needs statistics. Whether a sales statistic is to be built into a calculation program, a measurement cluster to be equipped with a correlation analysis, or if predictions about the spread of a disease are to be made via a taken sampling, the Statistic Library makes it all easy.

Professional Use of Numerical Recipes.
Numerical methods are required in many scientific and technical application fields. Be it the solving of very large systems of equations as they are used every day in the evaluation of measured values or if it concerns the solving of differential equations one is repeatedly confronted with numerical methods, which are often the only speedy, and above all, practical method to solve these pending problems.

Omikron Basic's Numeric Library is intended to facilitate the choice of appropriate solution methods and their implementation on the computer. Thus, this library offers functions and procedures concerning many important areas of numerical mathematics. Especial care was taken to supply a foundation of important and proven procedures, which can be used by most users. Amongst them is a procedure for the calculation of a Fourier transformation as well as an excellent differential equation solver and the solving of systems of equations as well as interpolation procedures.
