I have DataFrames installed, and as a dependency of that, StatsBase as well. I assumed that StatsBase was available to use as a package of its own. But
using StatsBase fails “not found in current path” error.
After some digging, I found that my
\\.julia\\environments\\v1.0\\Project.toml (and a stdlib entry). So I’m guessing only the packages installed manually are available to be loaded with a
using statement, and not the dependencies installed alongside them?
So, if I wanted to use
StatsBase.countmap, do I need to do an
add StatsBase explicitly, even though the package already exists in my
packages directory? In general, is it true that only explicitly installed packages can be used with
using, and not the dependencies they install?
