Documentation

To load:

 (use c3)

When loaded, all subsequent class definitions obey C3 linearization. It's not possible to switch back to the default, once it is active.

Examples

;; by Michele Simionato

(use c3)

(define O <object>)

;; first example
(define-class F (O) ())
(define-class E (O) ())
(define-class D (O) ())
(define-class C (D F) ())
(define-class B (D E) ())
(define-class A (B C) ())

; with CLOS:
(class-cpl A)
(A B C D F E object top)

; with C3:
(class-cpl A)
(A B C D E F object top) ; E <-> F
;; second example
(use c3)

(define-class F (O) ())
(define-class E (O) ())
(define-class D (O) ())
(define-class C (D F) ())
(define-class B (E D) ())
(define-class A (B C) ())

; with CLOS:
(class-cpl A)
(A B E C D F object top)

; with C3:
(class-cpl A)
(A B E C D F object top) ; identical
;; Pedroni's example
(use c3)

(define-class A(O) ())
(define-class B(O) ())
(define-class C(O) ())
(define-class D(O) ())
(define-class E(O) ())
(define-class K1(A B C) ())
(define-class K2(D B E) ())
(define-class K3(D A) ())
(define-class Z(K1 K2 K3) ())

; with CLOS:
(class-cpl Z)
(Z K1 K2 K3 D A B E C object top)

; with C3:
(class-cpl Z)
(Z K1 K2 K3 D A B C E object top) ; E <-> C
