    templates that might be interesting for various kinds of applications.

       Internally the code generator is used for finding undeclared variables.
       This is good to know because the code generator might raise a
       :exc:`TemplateAssertionError` during compilation and as a matter of
       fact this function can currently raise that exception as well.

    >>> env = Environment()

    This function is useful for dependency tracking.  For example if you want
    to rebuild parts of the website after a layout template has changed.
