Please don't worry; this is a common situation especially for beginners

a 'REQUEST' is a statement directed to the linker that demands to link the requested modules

while an '#include' is a directive to the compiler (in fact to the pre-processor) that instructs him
to incorporate a source file exactly in place where the 'include' line is shown
and to use its contents either to resolve undefined symbols encountered during compilation process
or to compile it as is, like any other source code.
an other significant distinction between them two, is that the 'REQUESTed' modules are binary entities
(i.e. already compiled) consisting of core functions (or even UDFs) found in libraries,
while the 'included' modules are source-code files (plain text, usually) containing other directives
(defines etc) and/or pure source code lines.
