Codex API is a collection of runtime components (executables and configuration
files) intended to make the task of developing Codex Plug-In Technology

The Codex API dramatically simplifies the development of Codex Applications,
by providing a collection of functions which make it very easy to communicate
with and use Codex Plug-Ins already installed on the system. The Codex
API also provides helper functions which may be used during Codex
The following topics provide more information:
Please keep in mind that
the Codex API is not required to develop Codex Plug-In Technology
compliant products. The Codex API is provided only as a RAD
(rapid-application-development) tool to aid in the development and
installation of Codex products. The Codex SDK portion of this documentation
outlines all the necessary information that can be used to build Codex
Plug-Ins and Codex Applications from scratch.
