tsNet or not tsNet?

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
This message may be a repeat. If you see two copies on the list, I apologise.

===

I’ve been executing this line of script in an app made on a Mac with LC 9.0.0 dp11
 get URL “http://www.myserver.com/mytextfile <http://www.myserver.com/mytextfile>.txt

It works fine, but I also wanted to detect what happens when the connection can't be established, so I made the command fail by switching off internet access on my machine. I got an error in ‘the result’, as expected. Or at least I got one when the line was executed in the IDE, and this was a tsNet error. As I had not initialised tsNet in my script - according to the dictionary, this **must** be done before tsNet functions are used - I concluded that the IDE had done it for me.

Fair enough, but I then reasoned that if I wanted to see the same kind of explicit error messages in my standalone, I would have to include a call to tsNetInit in my script. However, I created a little test app which **doesn’t** make any tsNet calls, certainly not initialising the package, but I still get a tsNet style error, e.g.

> tsneterr: (6) Could not resolve host: www.myserver.com <http://www.myserver.com/>

So, what’s going on? Is tsNet now always included in a standalone, and if so, how does it get initialised?

Puzzled, not for the first time.

Graham

I am getting the impression that any calls to network functions in your app will cause tsNet to be included (assuming you have auto detect on). I could be wrong.
