I am trying to use
imakeidx and the
regexpatch package in the same class. Since
imakeidx depends on the
xpatch package and
xpatch provides the same commands (same names, improved implementation) as regexpatch this gives errors (redefining commands). Is there anyway to pretend I loaded the
xpatch package, so the
imakeidx won"t load anything? (Since I load
regexpatch before, everything should be fine).
While I have a concrete example above, I would be interested in the general answer to prevent
require statements from loading packages, a workaround for my particular case is a bonus (I guess either I am doing something wrong or the package author will take a look).
