Hi all!
I have a little problem with mutual dependency. A short example for the
problem is the following:


package Hallo1;
use Hallo2;


package Hallo2;
use Hallo1; #<<

Hey, it works!!! THANK YOU!! But why this works?

It works because it forces EPIC to compile every Perl file in the project.
Normally, compilation is only performed for files when they are updated,
which does not take into account that other files may be also affected by
changes. This is a "known problem" in EPIC, which is difficult to solve
in general, but as you can see there is an easy workaround.
