This library provides a number of useful string utility functions, such as string builders, via a DLL to enhance the performance of your BYOND game.

The library itself has two parts, the DM interface which you program with, and the DLL, which your BYOND world will need.

  • The DLL currently has problems passing data back to the BYOND world if the string is longer than ~32,000 characters. Results at this point are sporadic and undefined. This may be a BYOND bug, currently it is under investigation by the author.

I'm having a good bit of trouble getting this to work. It'd be really nice if you could show an example or some sort of demo of how to use it for those of us with less experience. Currently all I see is a runtime saying 'Unable to load library', and apart from that i have no idea how to use any of the functions like copytext and replace or what-have-you.

This could be a great library - unfortunately, the Security Warning caused by using DLLs would probably drive a lot of potential players away.
