Subject Re: What does swcdepends do?
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2012 15:29:10 GMT
From the doc linked to:

"Compiler API can be added to answer the question of what additional RSLs are needed if a
given RSL is loaded."

Seems like the expectation was that additional compiler args to mxmlc might someday influence
rsl dependencies.

anyone provide an insight to this?
