;;; Synched up with: Not in GNU.

;; Moved to xemacs-base package by Stephen Turnbull on 2007-03-06.
;; Please keep these macros synched with src/bytecomp-runtime.el.

;;; Commentary:

;; Macros to cleanly eliminate warnings about undefined functions
;; or variables when the code knows what it's doing.  These macros DO
;; NOT rely on any byte-compiler changes, and thus can be copied into
;; a package and used within it.

;; NOTE: As a result of the above requirement, the macros rely on
;; "tricks" to get the warnings suppressed.  A cleaner way, of course,
;; would be to extend the byte compiler to provide a proper interface.

;; To make these macros available in a package, simply `(require 'bytedecl)'.
;; This library should contain no autoloads, as these macros are dumped
;; into 21.5.  (Eventually the `package-suppress' mechanism could be used.)

;;; Code:

;; #### Should we require an unquoted symbol rather than a quoted one,
;; as we currently do?  The quoting gets no generality, as `eval' is
;; called at compile time.  But most functions and macros want quoted
;; arguments, and I find it extremely confusing to deal with cases
;; such as `throw' requiring a quoted argument but `block' an unquoted
;; one.

In general, you should *NOT* use this; use `with-boundp' or its friends to
wrap individual uses, as necessary.  That way, you're more likely to
remember to put in the explicit checks for the variable's existence that

some circumstances, such as when writing an ELisp package that makes
integral use of optionally-compiled-in functionality (typically, an
interface onto a system library) and checks for the existence of the
functionality at some entry point to the package.  See
`globally-declare-fboundp' for more information."

  ;; By hacking byte-compile-unresolved-functions like this, we

;; EEEEEEEEVIL hack.  We need to create our own byte-compilation
;; method so that the proper variables are bound while compilation
;; takes place (which is when the warnings get noticed and batched
;; up).  What we really want to do is make `with-fboundp' a macro
;; that simply `progn's its BODY; but GOD DAMN IT, macros can't have
;; their own byte-compilation methods!  So we make `with-fboundp' a
;; macro calling `with-fboundp-1', which is cleverly aliased to
;; progn.  This way we can put a byte-compilation method on
;; `with-fboundp-1', and when interpreting, progn will duly skip
;; the first, quoted argument, i.e. the symbol name. (We could make
;; `with-fboundp-1' a regular function, but then we'd have to thunk
;; BODY and eval it at runtime.  We could probably just do this using
;; (apply 'progn BODY), but the existing method is more obviously
;; guaranteed to work.)
;;
;; In defense, cl-macs.el does a very similar thing with
;; `cl-block-wrapper'.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
