*jlinker-error-p*

The purpose of this global variable is to provide a default for the error-p keyword argument to the jlinker functions jlinker-init and jlinker-end. That argument determines the behavior of those functions when errors are detected.

The behavior prior to version 3.2.4 was in all cases to return some value that indicated an error situation. When the error-p keyword argument to those functions is unspecified and the value of this variable is nil, this behavior continues. The initial value of this variable is t. Note that this initial value is the opposite from previous releases and may cause some porting issues. The reason for the change is to switch to a more Lisp-like behavior in the default case.

When the error-p keyword argument is unspecified and the value of this variable is non-nil (or the value of the error-p keyword argument is specified non-nil in the function call), the functions signal an error of type jlinker-error.

See jlinker.htm for more information on the jLinker facility.
