The Clib Object

The Clib object contains functions that are a part of the standard C library. Methods to access files, directories, strings, the environment, memory, and characters are part of the Clib object. The Clib object also contains time functions, error functions, sorting functions, and math functions.

Some methods, shown in Table 36, may be considered redundant because their functionality already exists in eScript. Where possible, you should use standard eScript methods instead of the equivalent Clib functions. The Clib library is supported in Unix and Windows application servers. It is not supported for client-side scripting (Browser script).

NOTE:  The Clib object is essentially a wrapper for calling functions in the standard C library as implemented for the specific operating system. Therefore these methods may behave differently on different operating systems.

For an understanding of the Clib object, see the following topics:
