result& = FN FBTESTFORLIBRARY("Library Name")

RevisedEdit

July 28, 2000 (Release 3)

Description:
This function determines whether a library exists and returns a boolean result. Keep in mind that libraries often have one name that is visible in the Finder and a different name that is used for access. To determine the required name for LIBRARY statements, use a resource editor like Resorcerer and examine the _"cfrg" resource. The proper names for many common libraries can be found under the help menu in the manual named "Mac Libraries."

Example:

LONG IF FN FBTestForLibrary("ThreadsLib") = _false
  STOP "This program will not run without ¬
    the Thread Manager libraries."
XELSE
  
LIBRARY "ThreadsLib"
  REM Assign toolboxes here
  LIBRARY

END IF
