D - Another question about imports

reply Deja Augustine <Deja_member pathlink.com> writes:
I was curious if imported files were transparent, as in if A imports B and C
imports A, can C access B through A?   hm... that looks confusing, let me
qualify it with some pseudocode:

B:  int y;
A:  import B; int x;
C:  import A; A.B.y = 3;  A.x = 4;

Will that work or is it necessary for C to import B directly to access y?

Yes. ... It'll work, imports are imported.
