How are name_kotlin_module files used on android?


#1

When I build an android application containing kotlin modules, several files are created under META-INF.

In an earlier question the purpose of these files was noted as providing additional kotlin metadata. It is not clear to me, if that metadata is needed beyond compile time. Is this data needed when an APK is run? I’ve removed the files from my APKs, and have not seen any negative side effects.
