this is similar to c++ and c but diferent in a way;
suppose i want to allow programmers of my scical language to use the
ty[pes defined in a different design unit/compilation unit;
in c++ we can do that but we cannot do for types, i mean supose i have
a class type declared in a header file, in another file i have to
include this file.. but i want to allow the programmer to not include
this file but put it in a known location like current working
directory ; it might look very unsage and loose , but i think it will
be powerful feature also..
even if it is not to be implemented in the end , the problem still is
when ever such a syntax feature is deteced , the appropriate type node
has to be added to the ast , but since the information on the node is
contained in a different file, we have to open that file , look for the
type's information and then build a tree; also if we can maintain a
database like structure which always contains such frequently used
userdefined types, we can indexinto it and do it real fast;
any opinions on this will be greatfully appreciated
