Is attaching a library similar to restarting a computer to complete a new software installation?

It's conceptually similar, in the sense that you can't use a program on a PC by simply copying the installer to the hard drive, you have to actually install the program first (which on some occasions does require a restart) and then you can use it. Similarly, after copying a library file to a 48, and stored in main RAM or on the stack, the library features cannot be used until it is attached.

So you can think of attaching a library as being analogous to installing a program on PC/Mac.
