Writing and Using Amiga Libraries

Amiga libraries comes in two flavours:

  • The “*.library” files are explicitly loaded by the application, not necessarily at start time, and shared OS wide. They are the original standard.
  • ELF “*.so” files are Unix/Linux style shared libraries that are supported by AmigaOS4, and that are automatically loaded when the application loads.

Using "*.library" libraries

Opening and closing libraries

Amiga provides auto-open libraries to automatically manage used libraries. It is recommended method use libraries without having to write new code for each library you are using in your application.
