 +=====Using LBB with Liberty BASIC Workshop=====
  
 +//by Richard Russell, October 2013//\\ \\  If you use [[http://​alycesrestaurant.com/​workshop.htm|Liberty BASIC Workshop]] you can easily configure it to call **LB Booster** to compile and run your programs. To do that follow these steps:\\ \\ 
 +
 +  - In LB Workshop select **Options... Preferences...** (or click the Options button on the toolbar).
 +  - Select the **Paths** tab on the Options dialogue.
 +  - At the '​Liberty BASIC Path' box, browse to the location of **LBB.exe**.
 +  - At the '​Runtime Engine Path' box, browse to the location of **LBBRUN.exe**.
 +  - At the '​Liberty BASIC Help Path' box, browse to the location of [[/​Creating%20a%20CHM%20version%20of%20the%20LB%20Help%20files|lb45help.chm]].
 +  - You can also, if you wish, set the '​Optional Helpfile Path' to the location of **LBB.chm** (in the same folder as LBB.exe).
 +\\  With those changes **LB Workshop** will automatically compile, run or debug your program using **LB Booster**.\\ \\  If you use '**Run TKN**' (F8) you will need to type ***.lbb** in the 'File name' box to enable you to select .LBB files rather than .TKN files.\\ \\ //Note:// At the above link it says that LB Workshop "does not work reliably on versions of Windows later than Windows XP". You should take heed of that warning, but it has worked perfectly for me even on **Windows 10**.\\ \\ 
 +==== Include files ====
 +\\  When using LBB in conjunction with LBW you have a choice of what variety of **include** syntax to use, if any (requires LBB version 2.20 or later):\\ \\ 
 +
 +  * LBW's method - when one or more **'​include** directives are placed at the **beginning** of the program, the specified file(s) will be appended (that is added after the end of your program).
 +  * LBB's method - when one or more **'​include** directives are placed anywhere **other than** at the beginning of the program, the specified file(s) will be included at that point.
 +\\  You could even use both in the same program, but although that won't confuse **LB Booster** or **LB Workshop** it may confuse you!
