bug#14293: 23.4; Unclarity in documentation: flet replaced by cl-flet of


From: Nikolaus Demmel
Subject: bug#14293: 23.4; Unclarity in documentation: flet replaced by cl-flet of cl-letf in 24.3 and up.
Date: Sat, 27 Apr 2013 13:37:46 +0200

This is a documentation bug that is not about my emacs version, but
about the documentation for a change in 24.3. flet has been made
obsolete. This is a follow up to my question on [7], where Drew Adams
suggested I file a bug. From that discussion:

-----
I'm referring to the documentation [1,2,3,4]. Together with the
notification

    `flet' is an obsolete macro (as of 24.3); use either `cl-flet' or
    `cl-letf'.

as reported here [5], this documentation does not really tell me what to
do if I want to keep relying on the dynamic scoping of flet. A brief
google search [6] leads me to believe that

    (cl-letf (((symbol-function 'foo) #'(lambda (...) ...))) ...)

is the suggested solution, however I wanted to make sure that is the
case.
-----

Stefan Monnier has confirmed the suggested solution, but also hinted
that using defadvice might be more appropriate. Maybe the information
about how to precisely replace flet (i.e. same call if using cl-flet,
different syntax if dynamic binding is desired using cl-letf, with an
hint that defadvice might be better) could be included somewhere in the
docs, maybe in [2]?

Thanks,
Niko

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list
and the gnu.emacs.bug news group, and at http://debbugs.gnu.org.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':



If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
