LibOutreach, one of CyberXpert's leading-edge, add-in products
for Microsoft® Excel, takes Excel applications beyond the limits
of the single-user desktop into the realm of servers and distributed
processing. Whether it's your favorite formula for picking mortgage
rates or a computation in celestial mechanics, as long as it's
in a UNIX or Win32 library, you can run it from Excel. No more
costly conversions. Run server routines on their native platforms
and get the results on your desktop. LibOutreach opens up a world
of computing power you never imagined you'd find in a spreadsheet.
Call powerful library routines from Excel
and Visual Basic applications.
LibOutreach runs library routines on the server
and brings the results back to Excel and Visual Basic applications.
That means you can perform tasks otherwise impossible for Visual
Basic macros. Complex scientific and engineering operations, once
solely the province of high-powered UNIX servers, can now be called
from your PC. Excel need never be limited by its platform again.
Save migration costs and leverage your investment
in existing code.
LibOutreach puts Visual Basic wrappers around existing
programs, getting extra mileage out of code you've already paid
for. Out of the box, LibOutreach works with C and C++ libraries,
but it also works with custom wrappers for other languages, giving
you even more opportunities to recycle code. And, since LibOutreach
runs programs in their native environment, you don't pay porting
or conversion costs.
Get fast results with parallel processing
LibOutreach offloads processing to other computers,
giving you fast results and freeing your computer for other tasks.
No more waiting for complex calculations to complete while your
spreadsheet sits frozen. LibOutreach can run several processes
on multiple servers simultaneously while you get on with your
work. And with three execution modes to choose from, LibOutreach
lets you decide how and when to get the results.
Interface seamlessly with remote UNIX and
Win32 servers and existing applications.
LibOutreach manages all interaction with servers
transparently. No fussing with communications protocols. No fretting
over data type conversions. LibOutreach handles all of that for
you. And, since LibOutreach wraps everything as a function, you
can use any library routine Ü procedures as well as functions
Ü in spreadsheet formulas. (Multiple return values are sent to
ranges.) Just plug in server functions as you would any other
Excel or Visual Basic function and leave the rest to LibOutreach.
Simplify maintenance and code distribution.
LibOutreach maintains all of its modules on the
server and downloads code to clients on request. That lets you
manage source code in one location and simplifies distribution
and version control. No need to worry if you have the latest version
of the Futures Risk Function. One click of a button and you do.
And LibOutreach helps you manage development too. You can run
multiple instances of LibOutreach on a server to keep separate
versions for development, testing and production.
