Replacing different packages with the same name

question
package

#1

I have installed simonster’s Memoize package. Recently a new Memoize package was introduced, which I would like to try out. How to do this correctly? The problem is that
both packages have the same name and therefore I fear that something gets confused.



#2

This isn’t going to work well. Package names (and module names) really have to be unique across a Julia install. I hope the author of the new package renames it.

In meanwhile, if you really want to try it out, you’ll have to delete the old package from your .julia, and then clone the new package. You can do this if the old Memoize package does not have any dependants within your installed packages.
