Recursive "Use" statement

Recursive "Use" statement

Recursive "Use" statement

I know that when you use the "Use" statement, the program unit with the "use" statement has access to the global variables and subprograms (functions and subroutines) contained in the program unit named after the "use" statement. My question is whether or not this works recursively.
For example: in A - "Use B", in B - "Use C".
Would A have access to the global variables and subprograms contained in C as well?

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate it,


RE: Recursive "Use" statement

No. A has to Use C as well.

Stuff like this is quite easy to test. Just write some noddy code and try building it. It is a lot faster than asking a question, especially if it works. If it works, you have a solution, if it doesn't then ask a question.
