importFrom -- import symbols to the current private dictionary



This function can be used to import specific symbols from the private dictionary of another package into the private dictionary of the current package.

i1 : importFrom_Core {"raw"}

o1 = {raw}

o1 : List
i2 : raw random(ZZ^2, ZZ^2)

o2 = 8 3 
     1 7 

o2 : RawMatrix

To import all private symbols of a package, use debug(Package) instead. The symbols imported with this function can then be exported using export or exportMutable.
