Reinventing the wheel is not everybody's taste, so here comes a collection of useful snippets and helpers.

Its main purpose is to simplify some common tasks used by OXPers and also includes a few unique features. It contains functions to check requirements, helper functions for arrays, strings, numbers and vectors, an encrypt/decrypt algorithm, and, last but not least, functions for missionscreen models, an onscreen keyboard, a comms channel, special market deals, a event driven script for music, a system description based script to coordinate OXPs actions and a tool to check the player ship and NPCs. Over time it will grow and include more functions and features. The library does not alter any native JS objects (like Array or String) in its current form to avoid clashes.
