So use needs to be regarded.
Hmm... Good point. I don't know how this is dealt with WRT to the "every module is compiled with it's own compiler" approach perl 6 is supposed to have. Autrijus - do you have any solution? Either way, this simply implies that compilation is recursive, at least to determine whether the used module affects compilation. Perhaps the use macro could do this on it's own. I still think that "regular" linkage should be decoupled from compilation though, even if it's partially done during the compilation of a 'use' statement. -- () Yuval Kogman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 0xEBD27418 perl hacker & /\ kung foo master: /me supports the ASCII Ribbon Campaign: neeyah!!!
