Description of the EXCOMPAT

OpenOffice and StarOffice from version 6 onwards will be expanded by two additional basic interfaces. On the one hand, you can now call the spreadsheet functions directly from Basic. On the other hand, it is now possible to integrate external libraries (shared libraries) in basic modules under Linux. The new method offers a uniform interface for all operating systems (OS / 2 and Windows from version 5). The old method ‘Declare Func …’ has unfortunately never been implemented under Linux 🙁
