General language examples include: a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.

DATA_EXAMPLE shows how a computation can be set up in which certain problem-associated data can be defined by the user, and then later accessed by the computation. A class can be set up so that when a member of the class is created, data values may be associated with it and retrieved as needed, in a standard way. This avoids the use of static or global or persistent or common variables that are used in other languages.

HELLO is a simple example to print out "Hello, world!".

HSTACK_TEST shows how two or more arrays of the same row dimension can be horizontally stacked.

MAIN_DEMO shows how a Python file can include text that only executes if the file is called directly, as a "main program". In that case, the text might, for instance, run a demonstration or test of the functions within the file.

SUPPRESS_SPACES demonstrates that, when printing, you can suppress the spaces that are automatically inserted between successively printed items.

VSTACK_TEST shows how two or more arrays of the same column dimension can be vertically stacked.
