Error: Import names unknown module "std"

Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

I'm working through the HPCCDataTutorial.

I'm stuck with an "Error: Import names unknown module "std" (1, 27), 2081,"

I'm working on a Mac Book Pro, running the HPCC "community_4.0.2-2" VM in VirtualBox.

I'm using Crossover for Mac to run the ECL IDE.

I get the "unknown module std" error when I try to submit this code:

import TutorialPO, Std;
TutorialPO.Layout_People toUpperPlease(TutorialPO.Layout_People pInput)
SELF.FirstName := Std.Str.ToUpperCase(pInput.FirstName);

Has anyone seen this error before and successfully been able to resolve the problem?

I've gotten past this error by:

1. shutting down the HPCC VM.
2. Increasing HPCC VM memory to 4 GB, adding a Bridged Network adapter (not necessary but telling all)
3. Shutting down the ECL IDE
4. Starting HPCC VM (with new settings)
5. Starting ECL IDE.

So, increased memory and restart of both seemed to do the trick.
