Load and optionally compile groups of files.
A /system/ is a group of files, loaded and/or compiled together, possibly with interdependencies between particular files. This facility is heavily inspired by the Common Lisp DEFSYSTEM macro.
A /component/ is part of a system, usually a source-file.
Systems can be loaded into the interpreter or a compiled application. Re-loading will automatically track dependencies and source-file timestamps to compile and reload only files that have been modified, or which depend on other files that have been modified.
define-system[syntax] (define-system NAME COMPONENT ...)
Defines a system with the given name and components. This form expands roughly into:
(define NAME (make <system> ...))
NAME should be a symbol, COMPONENT should either be an instance of <file> (or one of its subclasses) or a string or symbol, which is an abbreviation of (scheme-file COMPONENT).
load-system[procedure] (load-system SYSTEM #!key quiet force)
Loads changed components in SYSTEM. If the system hasn't been loaded before, all components will be loaded, in the order given in the define-system form, possibly modified by interdependencies between components. By default components of class <scheme-file> will not be compiled, only loaded. Components of class <compiled-scheme-file> will always be compiled and loaded, if necessary. Components of class <file> will be ignored.
compile-system[procedure] (compile-system SYSTEM #!key quiet force)
Compiles components of SYSTEM that are components of class <scheme-file> or one of its subclasses using compile-file and loads them after successfull compilation unless a compiled version of the component is already loaded and none of its dependencies or included files have changed.
clean-system[procedure] (clean-system SYSTEM)
Clears the state of all files in SYSTEM, so a following load-system or compile-system will reload/compile everything.
build-system[procedure] (build-system SYSTEM)
Compiles components that are subclasses of <scheme-file> to dynamically loadable object files (using csc -s ...). Note that these files are ignored by load-system or compile-system, since these are not re-loadable on all supported platforms.
Use this operation for building compiled code that is installed as an extension or explicitly loaded by an application or Scheme script. In such a situation, build-system is similar to the make(1) tool or the make macro provided by the setup-api module.
File-constructors create components that are used inside a system definition or when specifying dependencies or included files.[procedure] (file NAME #!key depends includes path)
[procedure] (scheme-file NAME #!key depends includes path)
[procedure] (compiled-scheme-file NAME #!key depends includes path)
Construct instances of <file>, <scheme-file> and compiled-scheme-file, respectively.
This extension exposes various classes and generic functions that allow customization and subclassing of components and systems. For more information, consult the source code.
Provided we have this system definition in xyz.system:
;;;; xyz.system (define-system xyz (file "z") (scheme-file "y" includes: '("z")) (compiled-scheme-file "x" depends: '("y")))
Using the system in csi:
> (use system posix) > (load "xyz.system") > (load-system xyz) ; xyz: file "y" needs to be reloaded because it hasn't been loaded yet ; loading y.scm ... ; including z.scm ... ; xyz: dependency of "x" changed ; compiling x.scm ... ; loading /tmp/temp317d.so ... > (load-system xyz) ; xyz: nothing to do. > (define (touch . files) (for-each (lambda (f) (set! (file-modification-time f) (current-seconds))) files)) > (sleep 2) > (touch "z.scm") > (load-system xyz) ; xyz: file "y" needs to be reloaded because included file has changed ; loading y.scm ... ; including z.scm ... ; xyz: dependency of "x" changed ; compiling x.scm ... ; loading /tmp/tempcaf8.so ... > (load-system xyz) ; xyz: nothing to do. > (load-system xyz force: #t) ; xyz: file "y" needs to be reloaded because it hasn't been loaded yet ; loading y.scm ... ; including z.scm ... ; xyz: dependency of "x" changed ; compiling x.scm ... ; loading /tmp/temp8a25.so ...
