jlinker-slot

Arguments: key &optional value

The purpose of this function is to extract and modify data specific to one particular Lisp-Java connection. The first (required) argument, key, is a keyword that specifies the information accessed. If the second (optional) argument, value, is omitted or nil, the current value is returned; if the second argument is non-nil, it is stored.

The possible values of the key argument are:

One use for this object is to pass it as an argument to jnotify-lisp. Another use is to detect a new jlinker connection. The data structure in *jlinker-connection* is re-used from one connection to the next, hence an eq test against a saved value will always return t.

The value in the :notifier slot is newly created for each connection and can therefore be compared with eq to a saved value to detect a new connection. Note and warning: calling jlinker-slot with a second non-nil argument will modify the value of the slot and will probably damage the current jlinker connection beyond repair.

The other values of the key argument are reserved for internal uses at this time.

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