The Technical Reference describes the ExtendSim integrated development environment (IDE) -- the API, source code editor, compiler, dialog editor, graphical UI builder -- which makes it easy to modify blocks, develop custom features, and create new blocks with custom code, dialogs, and icons. It lists over 1,000 functions and has information about using include files and other programming tools.
