What's a toolkit? A toolkit is just a normal every day text file, .txt extension. Any one with notepad or a simple text editor can make one.
Yet I still haven't explained why you would even want one. According to my Java teacher they can save you time. "No TYPEING! Copy & paste.", he says that every day in class when some one gets an error. The no typing reminds me of Lummox and his famed phrase "No put usr in proc, ugh!" or something like that, right? What he's talking about is using the toolkit to copy and paste code to the source code.
You see the toolkit contains source code that is used often in your programs. Kinda like a piece of template for a specific part. So instead of typing out 5 to 15 lines of code and risk getting an error of "Undefined symbol" because you've misspelled your variable you just copy and paste the code from your toolkit and change the stuff that needs changed.
Building your toolkit isn't very complicated either. Taken from the teachers style, asterisks, *, are formed as a line with your topic to the right of them. Then you add your snippet code bellow this line of asterisks. Followed by a new line of asterisks with another topic. For example,

I am uncertain how useful a toolkit is in byond having never used one before, but I figured if it works in Java, which it does, then it might be good for other programming languages.
