The compiler has a
remap switch that allows us to rename a package, for example, imagine the following code:
//Some previous code myPack.Lib.println("Hello remapping!"); //Some code following
This would obviously not work because the
Lib class is not in the
myPack package. However, if you compile with the switch
--remap myPack:neko when compiling to Neko, this will work. The reason is simple: anywhere you have used the package name
myPack; the compiler will replace it with Neko, therefore using the correct package.
This can be used to make some cross-platform code.
On the other hand, it has a big draw-back: when you remap a package, all of the modules it contains are remapped. This actually means that you won't be able to use something ...
