Functions Index :: D :: DefinePackage
DefinePackage(string library, string package)
Defines the (visible to loader) global variables that identify the package.
library: The name of the library where the module belongs.
package: The name of the package where the module belongs.
Notes and conditions on arguments relations:
The function is designed to be run as a "macro" ie not to assign its return value to a variable (it returns last).
: The package may be further divided to an unlimited hierarchy of subpackages, if each level is separated by the "/" (slash) character.
Each slash character corresponds to a path separator in the underlying OS, thus to a nested subfolder in the package tree.
The following examples illustrate the concept:
- The string "array" defines a one level hierarchy: package array (an "array" folder inside the root folder of the library's distribution).
- The string "array/transforms" defines a two level hierarchy: package array, subpackage transforms (a "transforms" folder inside the "array" folder).
- The string "array/transforms/affine" defines a three level hierarchy: package array, subpackage transforms (a "transforms" folder inside the "array" folder), sub-subpackage affine (an "affine" folder inside the "transforms" folder).
