Anyhow, it unexpectedly generated an xml file to import the non-block into

Is there a best way to just remove that xml file without causing other
issues?

First, do a ‘make uninstall’ from your build directory, to remove the
file
from where GRC finds it.

Then, edit grc/CMakeLists.txt and remove the line that has the XML
filename
in it.

Finally, rerun the build (cmake, make, sudo make install, etc.).

Also when I tried to drag and drop the non-block into GRC, presumably
from

the default created xml file with no edits (curiosity always gets one in
trouble?) GRC went to a blank screen. Of course I was able to close and
restart and pick up at the last save which was fine. Okay none of that is
really unexpected.

In general, gr_modtool creates XML files that need further editing
before
being usable in GRC; in this case, GRC didn’t handle the mis-parse very
well.

I guess there must be a reason you would have a noblock that can be added
to a flowgraph?

You can create generic functions with parameters that you can set up as
variables in GRC. They aren’t blocks added to the flowgraph but are
still
“GRC blocks”.
