step 1, make a script with the name of the api you want to call
step 2, go into the script and make some functions like..

Code Select
function wait(int)
 local waitint = tonumber(int)
 os.sleep(waitint)
end

Now in your main script insert your api
Code Select
os.loadAPI("creepdasheep_api")
with your function put the name of your api...
Code Select
creepdasheep_api.wait(1)
Now you know how to make API's or you could have just gone to the wiki

Using `os.loadAPI` is one way of doing it. Another more modern way of doing it is `require`.

File a:
Code Select
local a = {}

local function a.sum(a, b)
  return a + b
end

return a

File b:
Code Select
local a = require("a")
a.sum(5+5)
