I'm getting a vague idea here. So what it means is that, the ay nALFS
impliments it(interpreting the commands) wouldn't suffice in order to
declare differences from the library includes. The profile has to be
compiled to include all the differences before it is executed. Is that
so? or am I again wrong here?
