Hi i am new to ROS In the tutorials, a package was created using the following command roscreate-pkg beginner_tutorials std_msgs rospy roscpp

If i want my package to have a Hokuyo_node do i have to include all of the dependencies of the Hokuyo_node

Or Can I just do roscreate-pkg example std_msgs rospy roscpp Hokuyo_node

will the dependencies of Hokuyo_node automatically be added?

I noticed when i miss-spelled Hokuyo_node roscreate-pkg did not give any errors...

Is possible to play with the Hokuyo node if you dont currently have a LIDAR?

A package's dependencies should automatically be added when you specify it as a dependency.

The dependency is just a name as you might only create the dependency later. A warning might make sense here to avoid spelling mistakes. You could file a ticket to request that.

I'm not sure, what you want with a hokuyo_node without a Hokuyo. You can start it, but it should immediately give you an error that there is no sensor.
