Allow multiple script libraries to %Include the same constants

If you have two script libraries that both include the same constants file:


%Include "lsconst.lss"


%Include "lsconst.lss"

and then you use both libraries in a design element


Use "LibraryA"

Use "LibraryB"

this generates the error "Duplicate PUBLIC name" at compile time. But these are not two different declarations with the same name, they are literally the same declarations.

It should be possible for multiple script libraries to include the same constants files - this would make it much easier to build resuable independent script libraries.

    Currently, this is handled by its own library containing only one line with %Include. "Use" from multiple libraries can be applied to this library.

    An alternative solution would be to extend the %If %ElseIf %Else % End If directive with the ability to test for the existence of a public symbol, similar to #ifdef and #ifndef.

    Why not just make a library called "includes" with the %Include? Then you can use this lib in all your libs without interference

    The problem is that all values in the .lss files are declared PUBLIC. Regardless if you remove "Option public" from both LS libraries and only declare subs and functions as public that need to be accessed from outside the library, all variables in the .lss files are PUBLIC by DEFAULT.
