What you've uncommented there was an example of how to cause an error
message when a globalsub or usertag doesn't exist. See the comment right
before those lines in construct/catalog.cfg:
# Here you can set up fatal errors if a necessary sub or usertag
# doesn't exist, uncomment one of next lines to test
There isn't a globalsub called 'nevairbe', which is the whole point.

The Require directive isn't for Perl modules in Interchange 4.6. However,
you will be able to use it in the forthcoming 4.7 version:
Require module LWP::UserAgent
Suggest module LWP::UserAgent
if you just want to emit a warning if the module is missing, but continue
But for now, with Interchange 4.6, see usertags/get-url for an example of
how to verify that a standard Perl module exists and then use it in a user
BTW, you may want to post your questions to the interchange-users list
(see http://lists.akopia.com/mailman/listinfo/interchange-users ) instead,
because this list is mostly used for Minivend 3 questions now.
