Here you should be able to find all the latest versions of all the (freely) available 3rd party libraries, for Blitz Basic 2. All commercial libraries (are there any apart from the BSS ones which you can now download?) are mentioned, or have links to demo versions of the libraries. For more information on the library in question, or to download the library, click on the name of the library.

Note that these are just actual Blitz extension libraries, and do not include standard OS libraries. A page to be created in the future will list all the converted OS libraries, only if they are not just conversions. Anybody can do that using FDConvert. They will be included if there are decent examples, or if use of the library has been wrapped into easy to use functions.

If you know of a library which is not listed here, or a later version than is listed here, please email us. Currently there are 103 libraries in the pool.

If you are looking for the AmiBlitz distribution libraries as separate files, you can download this file. Note that some of the library numbers listed in this section of the site may be different from the officially allocated numbers (see the davidsdeflibs.txt file in the Amiblitz archives). This is because this section lists the library numbers of the libraries as they are distributed.

For a number of tools for managing and installing libraries, take a look at our install section to get an idea of how to install the libraries, and then visit the tools section for the programs you will need. If you are interested in writing a library, there is information in the library developer archive in our documents section.
