I’ve been executing this line of script in an app made on a Mac with LC 9.0.0 
 get URL “ 

It works fine, but I also wanted to detect what happens when the connection 
can't be established, so I made the command fail by switching off internet 
access on my machine. I got an error in ‘the result’, as expected. Or at least 
I got one when the line was executed in the IDE, and this was a tsNet error. As 
I had not initialised tsNet in my script - according to the dictionary, this 
**must** be done before tsNet functions are used - I concluded that the IDE had 
done it for me.

Fair enough, but I then reasoned that if I wanted to see the same kind of 
explicit error messages in my standalone, I would have to include a call to 
tsNetInit in my script. However, I created a little test app which **doesn’t** 
make any tsNet calls, certainly not initialising the package, but I still get a 
tsNet style error, e.g.

> tsneterr: (6) Could not resolve host: 
> <> 

So, what’s going on? Is tsNet now always included in a standalone, and if so, 
how does it get initialised?

Puzzled, not for the first time.
