[PATCH] Allow user-defined meta-commands

From: Andreas Rottmann
Subject: [PATCH] Allow user-defined meta-commands
Date: Mon, 01 Nov 2010 01:28:11 +0100
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.0.50 (gnu/linux)

Besides allowing user-defined meta-commands, this change also refactors
the meta-command machinery to split reading a command's arguments from
the procedure actually implementing it, and hence allows nesting
meta-commands.  As an example of such a command, ",in" is added as a new

* module/system/repl/command.scm: Export `define-meta-command'.
  (*command-module*): Replaced by the hash table `*command-infos*'.
  (command-info, make-command-info, command-info-procedure)
  (command-info-arguments-reader): New procedures, encapsulating the
  information about a meta-command.
  (command-procedure): Adapted to use the `command-info' lookup
  (read-command-arguments): New auxiliary procedure invoking a command's
  argument reader procedure.
  (meta-command): Adapted to the split of reading arguments and
  executing a command.
  (add-meta-command!): New auxiliary procedure, registers a meta
  command's procedure and argument reader into `*command-infos* and
  (define-meta-command): Extended to allow specification of the command's
  category; split the argument reader and actual command procedure.
  (guile:apropos, guile:load, guile:compile-file, guile:gc): Remove these
  aliases, they are unnecessary as we now use a hash table instead of the
  module to store the commands.
  (in): New meta-command, which evaluates an expression, or alternatively
  executes another meta-command, in the context of a specific module.
* doc/ref/scheme-using.texi (Module Commands): Document the `in'
