    I've grasped the fact that "*.xml" and "*.jar" go into the additional library folder, and that "*.b4a" is the program source code ... but when I looked at "CameraEx", it includes a "*bas" (BASIC?) file. So where does that go?

    You can place those modules in any directory and then add them using the IDE to your project.

    There's an option to have shared modules, look in the IDE under TOOLS -> CONFIGURE PATHS.

    When I looked at the IDE again, I found that the "*.bas" file had already opened a second tab in the window beside main, so if must have "read in" the data. (Alas, I THEN read that CameraEx is for a modern OS. My device is using 1.41 - which I think is quite old.

    The usual directory for ".bas" files is the same as for the ".b4a" file.
    The "b4a" file contains the code of "Main" module, and there is one "bas" file for each additional module (tab).

    Thanks for this: Now you've also explained what the "tab" is. It helps
