Method load_module()

Method load_module

program load_module(string module_name)


Load a binary module.

This function loads a module written in C or some other language into Pike. The module is initialized and any programs or constants defined will immediately be available.

When a module is loaded the C function pike_module_init() will be called to initialize it. When Pike exits pike_module_exit() will be called. These two functions must be available in the module.


The current working directory is normally not searched for dynamic modules. Please use "./" instead of just "" to load modules from the current directory.
