Module gtk.strict

Checks uses of undeclared global variables. All global variables must be 'declared' through a regular assignment (even assigning nil will do) in a main chunk before being used anywhere or assigned to inside a function.

Functions

init () Enable strict checking for the calling environment
lock () Prevent creation of new variables in the calling environment.
strict_locked (t, n, v) When the table is locked, __newindex shouldn't be called.
strict_newindex (t, n, v) new global variables are only allowed in main and in C functions


Functions

init ()
Enable strict checking for the calling environment
lock ()
Prevent creation of new variables in the calling environment. This can be used to detect unwanted usage of globals.
strict_locked (t, n, v)
When the table is locked, __newindex shouldn't be called. The only valid possibility is when the variable has been assigned nil, in which case it vanishes, and the next assignment will be a new one.

  • n:
  • v:
strict_newindex (t, n, v)
new global variables are only allowed in main and in C functions
