The following is a list of files contained in the "Frink with Libraries" distribution. (Requires Java Web Start.)

Any of these libraries can be included by simply adding the appropriate "use" statement to your program, such as

use sun.frink

You can also download all sample programs in a single zipfile,

ArbitraryPrecision.frink[text] Calculates some functions (e.g. log and exp) to arbitrary precision.
ChineseNumbers.frink[text] Formats integers into their Chinese equivalents (formal and casual)
CoordinateConversions.frink[text] Converts latitude and longitude to and from UTM coordinates.
Datum.frink[text] A data structure used to represent the ellipsoidal shape of the earth, used in various navigation routines.
