Overview

KCL provides engineering extensibility through built-in modules, system modules and plug-in modules.

The user code does not need to import functions that directly use builtin functions (such as calculating the length of a list with len, obtaining the type of value through typeof, etc.), and for basic types such as strings, it also provides some built-in methods (such as converting the case of strings, etc.).

For relatively complex general logic, it is provided through the system modules. For example, by importing the math module, we can use related mathematical functions, and we can use the regular expression by importing the regex module. For KCL code, it can also be organized into different user modules.

Standard Library Modules

crypto

Provides implementations of common encryption algorithms and protocols.

datetime

Concrete date/time and related types and functions.

json

Provides JSON related encoding/decoding functions.

manifests

Provides the ability for structure serialization output.

math

Provides commonly used mathematical calculation functions.

net

A lightweight IPv4/IPv6 manipulation library.

regex

Provides commonly used regular expression functions.

units

Provides some conversion functions between numbers and international standard units.

yaml
