Dynamic Modules

Automath announced Dynamic Modules. It is now possible t link existing applications or runtime-libraries to a MuPAD system. This is not realized by using network protocols, files or message-passing but by direct linking of the application program to the MuPAD kernel. MuPAD and the external program then run in the same memory space and can exchange date rapidly and efficiently. Modules are created with the MuPAD Module-Generator and the accompanying toolbox which simplifies and streamlines the access to all functions of the MuPAD kernel.
