eval-string

Arguments: string &optional (eof-error-p t)eof-value &key (start 0) end preserve-whitespace (read-error-p t) read-error-value (eval-error-p t) eval-error-value

This function reads the contents of the string string and then evaluates the resulting object. It returns the result(s) of the evaluation. This function is useful when making complex remote calls.

The arguments eof-error-p, eof-value, start, end, and preserve-whitespace are passed to read-from-string and control the values returned from read-from-string.

If read-from-string returns a value, it is passed to eval. If read-from-string signals an error, then the behavior is controlled by the read-error-p argument. If the value is non-nil (the default), then the same error is signaled from eval-string. If the value is nil, then the value of the read-error-value argument is passed to eval.

If the call to eval returns values, those values are returned from eval-string. If the call to eval signals an error, then the behavior is controlled by the eval-error-p argument. If the value is non-nil (the default), then the same error is signaled from eval-string. If the value is nil, then the value of the eval-error-value argument is returned as the single value of eval-string.
