Availability of Library Element

Draft MDC Standard

Right Hand Pointer

7.1.6.3 Availability of library elements

An implementation of M[UMPS] shall

  1. provide the mandatory librarys defined in this standard and
  2. provide a means by which replacement definitions in routines of libraryelements can be installed so that a routine can access them as if they were part of the implementation. An implementation may additionally provide a means by which non-M[UMPS] code can be installed to implement libraryelements.

An implementation may also provide a means by which specific librarys or libraryelements of the M[UMPS] Standard Library are only optionally installed.
