Chapter 15. CAL 101 > Viewing CAL Programs

Viewing CAL Programs

Unless a CAL program comes with some written instructions, you won’t know what it is designed to do to the data in your project. This is especially true if you download CAL programs from the Internet. Many come with documentation, but many don’t. However, most programs do come with a brief description (as well as instructions for use) within their source code.

NOTE

WHAT IS SOURCE CODE?

Source code (or program code) is the text of the programming language commands used for a particular program. You create a program by first writing its source code. Then a computer can run the program by reading the source code and executing the commands in the appropriate manner, thus carrying out the intended task.
