Enforced calling of finalizers for Lisp code
ASDF-FINALIZERS This library allows you to implement and enforce proper finalization of compile-time constructs while building Lisp source files. It depends on ASDF 2.22.3 or later. TODO: * Add XCVB support. * Add SLIME support for proper :around-compile hooks. ==== Exported Functionality ==== asdf-finalizers defines and uses package ASDF-FINALIZERS. It uses ASDF 2.22.3's :around-compile hook mechanism and the :compile-check extension to its compile-file* to build stuff. macro FINAL-FORMS () This macro will expand into any final forms so far registered. The forms will be expanded inside an (EVAL-WHEN (:COMPILE-TOPLEVEL :LOAD-TOPLEVEL :EXECUTE) ...) but you can override that with your own EVAL-WHEN. You need to have finalizers enabled to use this macro (see WITH-FINALIZERS). In a file that uses finalizers, you MUST include (FINAL-FORMS) after the last finalizer was used and before the end of the file, or the compilation will fail. Typically, you will write (FINAL-FORMS) as the very last form in your file, or if you didn't use the asdf-finalizers package, you will instead write (ASDF-FINALIZERS:FINAL-FORMS). function EVAL-AT-TOPLEVEL (FORM &optional ALREADY-DONE-P-FORM WARNING &rest WARNING-ARGUMENTS) This function, to be used within a macro, deftype, reader-macro, etc., will evaluate toplevel FORM now during the macroexpansion phase, but also register it to be evaluated at the toplevel as part of the FINAL-FORMS, so that assuming you use the FINAL-FORMS afterwards but before the end of current file, so it is available to whoever load the associated FASL or CFASL. If the FORM has already been registered, it is skipped. Either now or when loading the (C?)FASL, the evaluation of FORM will be skipped when ALREADY-DONE-P-FORM evaluates to a true value. When finalizers are not enabled, warn with given warning and arguments or with a default warning, unless ALREADY-DONE-P-FORM evaluated to a true value, at which point we trust the user to somehow have done the right thing, and a build from clean will hopefully catch him if he didn't. function REGISTER-FINAL-FORM (FORM) This function, to be used within a macro, reader-macro, deftype, etc., will register a constant piece of code to the evaluated at toplevel at the end of the current code fragment (e.g. file). function REGISTER-FINALIZER (THUNK) This function, to be used within a macro, reader-macro, deftype, etc., will register a THUNK to be called during finalization. Dependencies may be enforced by thunk calling thunk dependencies. Any form returned by the THUNK will be included in the finalized code after the code from any previously registered thunk of constant code fragment, and after the code from any registered dependency. macro WITH-FINALIZERS ((&key FINALIZE) &body BODY) Evaluate BODY in a context where finalizers are enabled. By default, don't finalize, because we want to catch code that fails to finalize in the same file that requires code finalization. This macro is typically used by ASDF when you configure it as below. For convenience, you may also use it to test code at the REPL; you may then pass an argument FINALIZE with true value, and WITH-FINALIZERS will evaluate finalization forms. function CHECK-FINALIZERS-AROUND-COMPILE (FUN) Assuming your system :depends-on (:asdf-finalizers), you may use this function as your :around-compile function for an ASDF system, module or file, as in :around-compile "asdf-finalizers:check-finalizers-around-compile" This will allow you to use finalizers within covered source files, and will issue an error if you fail to evaluate (FINAL-FORMS) after the last finalizer was used and before the end of the file. Alternatively, you may use ASDF::FINALIZED-CL-SOURCE-FILE below. You may also have your own custom :around-compile hooks chain into CHECK-FINALIZERS-AROUND-COMPILE to achieve the same effect and more. class ASDF::FINALIZED-CL-SOURCE-FILE (CL-SOURCE-FILE) Assuming your system :defsystem-depends-on (:asdf-finalizers), you may use this class as your system's :default-component-class, or as the class of a component as in (:finalized-cl-source-file "foo" :depends-on ("bar" "baz")) This will automatically declare CHECK-FINALIZERS-AROUND-COMPILE as the relevant component's :around-compile hook.
