In addition to core language features, Meson also provides a module system aimed at providing helper methods for common build operations. Using modules is simple, first you import them:

mymod = import('somemodule')

After this you can use the returned object to use the functionality provided:

mymod.do_something('text argument')

Meson has a selection of modules to make common requirements easy to use. Modules can be thought of like the standard library of a programming language. Currently Meson provides the modules listed on subpages.
