rpc-open-p

Arguments: &optional port-or-server verify verbose

This function reports on the state of one or more rpc ports and/or servers. The verbose argument causes output to be printed to the console. The verify argument, when non-nil, causes a connection to be verified with a round-trip message. When the first argument is nil, this function reports on the state of the default port. The return value depends on argument values.

When the first argument is a datagram port instance, this method will normally return :idle.

When the first argument is an rpc-port instance, this function returns two values:

When the first argument is a server instance, the value is a list of the form (server-home-name :listening local-port p1 p2 ... ) where p1... are lists describing any ports derived from this server.

When the first argument is :all, the value is a list of the form (s1 s2 ... [clients]) where s1... are reports for all known server instances. The client's entry is there if there are any client ports present. It is a list of the form (:client-ports nil p1 p2 ... ).

When the first argument is a string or symbol, the value returned is the rpc-port-server instance, or the rpc-port instance with that home name. All port instances are identified by their unique local home name.
