Opens a system library

int sm_l_open_syslib(char *lib_name);

The name of the library to open. Panther searches for lib_name in the current directory, then along the path given to sm_initcrt, and finally along the path defined by SMPATH.



Use sm_l_open_syslib to open a library as a system library. The library name will not be displayed in the Library Table of Contents window. Otherwise, this function performs the same steps as sm_l_open which opens a library in these steps:

Panther has no limit on the number of libraries you can have open at the same time. Note that some systems have severe limits on memory or simultaneously open files.
