LDPL Libraries

As most programming languages, LDPL leverages a number of first and third-party libraries. Nearly all of these libraries are released in the form of a .ldpl file or group of .ldpl files.

The process of installing an LDPL library is fairly straightforward: locate the library file (or the main library file, in case the library you want to import has multiple files) and import it to your LDPL source file by using the INCLUDE keyword. For example, if you have two files source.ldpl and lib.ldpl in a folder and you want to import source.ldpl into lib.ldpl, you should add the line INCLUDE "lib.ldpl" into source.ldpl before the DATA: and PROCEDURE: sections.

Library Including Example
# INCLUDE statements go before
# the DATA and PROCEDURE sections.
include "route/to/lib.ldpl"
# ...

First-party LDPL libraries are listed on this page. You may also find libraries on GitHub by searching "LDPL" in the search box. If you write an LDPL library and you'd like to have it listed here, please contact us.

You can download just the files you want and include them as stated earlier on this page.
