Invoke other javascript files from inside javascript

    Hi
    I'd like to create a library of functions/objects inside JS which I can re-use whereever I want in my other Scripts. I know there is no easy #inlcude "aLibFile.js" command from inside js, but perhaps Max is providing another solution for that? In HTML and PHP you can easyily include other js-files.
    Thanks for your help in advance

      Hi
      I found a way:
      globalfunction = function a () { post("globalfunctionn"); }
      this you can put into your lib.js. load the lib.js somewhere and call this function inside aother js like a(); and it works.
      but still: including js-files would be more appreciative.

      JavaScript doesn't have anything like the include's C or the require in ruby for instance. If you put some files in the js-etensions folder though you are kinda able to emulate that behavior. Note that you'll have to restart Max each time you change the files in there. There are a few examples included in the standard distribution, ejies does that as well if you need more examples.
      BTW, there's a dedicated JS forum

      thanks for the help
      I know there are zounds of boards, but I was hoping Max included something for this case in it's js-framework which I have overseen.
