Someone I met at FOSDEM told me that in the gcc-3.? series of compilers #import didn't work (and acted just like #include).  I haven't verified that for myself, but if so, it's a good reason to continue the practice of bracketing header file content in
#ifndef XXX
#define XXX
#endif /* XXX */
So that things work with all all compiler versions.

import is no longer deprecated form gcc, so it is perfectly fine to use it.

This is not really a bug. In fact one uses the "#import" directive indeast of "#include".

It should be, to spare the poor programmer unnecessary typing or nasty surprises when the compiler complains about redefinitions. Just something simple like

#ifndef FILENAME
#define FILENAME

<Stuff goes here, including #include statements>


Using Gorm 1.1.0.
