Why does MadExcept 5.1 depend on MadRemote?

Post by wpostma »

Something odd here. What is MadRemote and is it a thing for which source is not shipped?

I always like to build my packages from source and in MadExcept 5.1 I can't build them from source, because madRemote_ is not found when trying to build madexcept 5.1's packages from source.

Is this intentional?

package madKernel_;
...

requires
madDisAsm_,
madRemote_;

Oddly enough, commenting that madRemote_ line out, I can build again.

Was this a mistake?

madExcept does not depend on madRemote. madKernel does, sort of, but madKernel is not a part of madExcept. Also, madKernel can be compiled without madRemote. It loses a tiny bit of functionality without madRemote, but that's about it.

Ah. That makes more sense then. I thought MadKernel was a core piece of MadExcept.

Turns out it's a thing I never used.
