PIL is pretty easy to read and dofile, require and module all made sense
after I read about them but this was short lived.
The relentless debate on these topics has completely confused me, so
much so that I avoid all of these.
This problem, sounds complex but perhaps it could be chipped apart. One
simple function that would help people like me would be a sort of
"copy_in()" function whereby the contents enclosed would be would be
parsed as if they had been typed where the copy_in function was called
from, do - end blocks around it could be used also be used to control scope.
It's my understanding that this is not how dofile works, dofile has
scope side affects.
copy_in would be very simple to understand and could reduce the need for
require and could reduce these discussions a bit too-Patrick
