Manageable Code Structure
MCS is a extension of Pike language. MCS allow you to write "Manageable" code, which means you can place all the codes about a special FEATURE in one place, so you can remove it whenever you don't need this FEATURE. A FEATURE is made up with some MIXINs and a DAEMON. To use a FEATURE named MY_FEATURE just place a line IMPORT(F_MY_FEATURE) in your main source file. remove this line to disable MY_FEATURE. When a FEATURE is imported, all the MIXINs in the FEATURE will act as a base class of the CLASS in the main souce, which has the same name of the MIXIN. A DAEMON of a FEATURE act as a global object, which can also IMPORT FEATUREs, just like the main source. See lineserver.pike as a example. Visit http://mcs-awl.sourceforge.net/ for more.
