I’m currently trying to compile an app using
PackageCompiler. The associated project
App depends on two packages
Foo contains a bit of glue code to link with
These portion of code is of no interest without
Bar so I figured it was relevant to use
Requires to avoid loading that if not used.
Now this works just fine when using an interactive REPL / VsCode. However, it seems to be problematic when compiling an app with
PackageCompiler, even though my compilation line
create_app(<package_dir>,<exebinpath>; precompile_execution_file=<pspath>,incremental = true, cpu_target="generic;sandybridge,-xsaveopt,clone_all;haswell,-rdrnd,base(1)", include_lazy_artifacts=true, include_transitive_dependencies = true)
precompile_execution_file that contains
using Foo, Bar which should load both packages as well as the glue code.
If I understood correctly, the mechanism used by
Requires happens at run-time and not at compile-time, but I thought that it was precisely the role of the
precompile_execution_file to specify things that would happend during the actual run-time use of the app.
Can someone clarify this behavior ?
