One last question at this stage: I know how you "add-hook" but how do you
create a hook variable in the first place? Is it something particular to
emacs?


I should have responded: yes, it is particular to Emacs Lisp.


(defvar some-hook nil)

(defun some-function (...)
  ...
  (run-hooks 'some-hook)
  ...)


defvar creates a hook variable.
run-hooks associates some-hook with the some-function.

Now one writes lambda functions associated with the some-hook
without modifying the some-function????

Is that the idea? The post was incomplete. Perhaps the author
know too much for us. But I want a simple concrete minimal example
of running code.


Yes, that is the idea.  For concrete examples, simply grep (search) for
run-hooks and run-hook-with-args in the lisp/*.el and lisp/*/*.el files

of your Emacs distribution.


Then check out advice.el :-)
