Element: <utilizes>

Syntax

        <!ELEMENT utilizes       (name, version*)>

This element occurs in : Element: <packageinfo>

See also : Element: <name> | Element: <version>

Description

The utilizes element indicates that the package containing the utilizes element utilizes the package whose name is contained in the name child-element, but does not depend on it (in which case the element requires should be used).

The actual name is put into the name child-element.

[Note] Note

To work properly, the package identified in the name child-element must be defined in either the same profile as the utilizes element, or in an additional profile (if the ALFS implementation you are using supports loading multiple profiles).
