4.20 Plug-in loading and instantiation
Plug-in instantiation is similar to simulation instantiation but with the following differences:
- Plug-ins can be instantiated more than once. When
called on a plug-in factory, it creates an instance of the plug-in, but the
factory instance remains, allowing multiple instances of the plug-in to be
created with the same or different parameter values.
- The parameter names that are given by
are not hierarchical, but are relative to the plug-in instance. They are the
same as the parameter names returned by calling
resource_getList() on the plug-in instance.
