Very quick question about Compass :)

I've been combing tutorials on Compass and I see many references to:

@import "base";
@import "reset";

etc... Are these files that are "out-of-the-box" with Compass? Or, are they files that we need to create ourselves?

Also, what is the difference between a "partial" and a "mixin"?


Thank you in advance for your time.

It's all there in the documentation:  http://sass-lang.com/documentation/file.SASS_REFERENCE.html#partials

It's creating variables and trying to be efficient with loading styles
