* tests/*.test: Add 'package prefer latest' to remaining test files.

  1. … 32 more files in changeset.
* forward.test: Constrain the max recursion depth around recursive forwards, so that we do not run into early crashes on systems with limited stack sizes (when the stack is saturated before a recursion limit is hit). This fixes test runs on MinGW/ gcc builds at AppVeyor.

* forward.tests: Provide some background comment on platform-dependent error messages as test conditions (infinite loop) and make sure tests under 8.6 are executed as intended.

trigger new travis build

error message on stack overflow differs on windows and unix for tcl 8.5

we see now a different error message in tcl8.5 for a recursive loop (drop test?)

- deactivate under windows for the time being

Make test suite working under 8.5, again.

- use nx rather than xotcl2 terminology in nsf::method::forward

- renamed "-methodprefix" to "-prefix" in nx, since the prefix can be applied as well applied to a cmd.

  1. … 4 more files in changeset.
- nsf.c, NsfForwardMethod(): Make sure that a 2nd argument is available for prepending the methodprefix. Earlier, NSF crashed in case of a missing 2nd arg. - Added some basic tests on -methodprefix.

forward.test: Adding some tests

- use in forwarders "-frame object" instead of "-objframe" in nx for consistency with other calls (e.g. dispatch). Other values for "-frame" are not allowed. (btw, XOTcl has "-objscope")

  1. … 4 more files in changeset.
forwarders: - RFE "provide %method" as keyword like %proc" was already implemented. Dropping %proc would break XOTcl2 compatibility. - adding a test case

nsf.c: - change name of enumeratorConverterEntry to Nsf_EnumeratorConverterEntry, move it with NSF_ARG_* flags to tcl.h to make it available in derived modules using the converter - Added editor hints for a more uniform appearance

nx::test: - change test cases to newer interface - don't use "namespace import nx::*" in test cases when not required

- C-code Generator: added "-typeName" for enumeration types that allows for disambiguation of enumerations with different argument names. Before that, the argument name determined the c-type of the enumeration. Therefore it was not possible to use argName "-type" for two different functions with a different list of enumerators.

- changed "-methodtype" to simply "-type" in

/obj/ info methods ... ?-type all|scripted|builtin|alias|forwarder|object|setter|nsfproc? ...

/obj/ info object methods ... ?-type all|scripted|builtin|alias|forwarder|object|setter|nsfproc? ...

/obj/ info lookup methods ... ?-type all|scripted|builtin|alias|forwarder|object|setter|nsfproc? ...

Object-method Reform: - changed interface to object specific commands by requiring an ensemble named "object". The rational behind is essentially to use always the same info command to retrieve object specific methods, no matter whether these are defined on a plain object or an a class object (does not break the "contract" what e.g. "info method" returns).

Now we define methods via:

/cls/ method foo {args} {...body...}

/cls/ object method foo {args} {...body...}

/obj/ object method foo {args} {...body...}

Similarly, aliases, forwards and mixins are defined, e.g.

/cls/ mixin add ...

/cls/ object mixin add ...

/obj/ object mixin add ...

/obj/ require object method ...

The same change propagated as well to the "info" method.

Now we have:

/cls/ info methods ...

/cls/ info object methods ...

/obj/ info object methods ...

Similar, the object parametererization uses

/cls/ create obj -object-mixin M

/cls/ create obj -object-filter f

/metacls/ create cls -mixin M1 -object-mixin M2

/metacls/ create cls -filter f1 -object-filter f2

- as a consequence,

a) "/cls/ class method ...",

"/cls/ class alias ...",

"/cls/ class forward ...",

"/cls/ class filter ...",

"/cls/ class mixin ...",

"/cls/ class info ..."

"/obj/ class method require method ..."

"/obj/ class method require public method ..."

"/obj/ class method require protected method ..."

"/obj/ class method require private method ..."

were dropped

b) "/obj/ method ....",

"/obj/ alias ....",

"/obj/ forward ...."

"/obj/ filter ...."

"/obj/ mixin ...."

"/obj/ info method*"

"/cls/ create obj -mixin M"

"/cls/ create obj -filter f"

"/obj/ method require method ..."

"/obj/ method require public method ..."

"/obj/ method require protected method ..."

"/obj/ method require private method ..."

were dropped

- added package nx::class to allow optionally the "class" notation

"/cls/ class method ..." (and friends, see (a)), and

"/cls/ class info ...

- added package nx::plain-object-method to allow optionally plain method

b) "/obj/ method ...." (and friends, see (b))

- add support to slots to use ensemble methods as setters

- nsfStack.c / CallStackMethodPath(): Providing a fix for reporting method paths correctly when dispatching to ensembles from alias parameters. Prior to that fix, the intermediate (and inactive) CMETHOD frame wrapping configure() calls caused [current methodpath]s to report empty string elements. Added some test cases. - nsf.c / ObjectDispatch(), DispatchUnknownMethod(): When testing objects as alias parameter targets, I found cases when the default (C-level) unknown handler was invoked upon. The result was an unknown message which reported the delegator object as "unknown" method! This was due to injecting the delegator object into the argument vector at position 0, subsequently used by the C-level unknown handler. First, I tried to make the C-level unknown handler aware of the ensemble call context (by funneling through the CSC and frame flags) but this turned out to be complicated to achieve this simple task. As an alternative, I suggest the following patch: The first argument in unknown calls is treated as a list, and dependening on the call context (ensemble vs. non-ensemble) contains all the necessary call data. For ensemble methods, it is the delegator object, the entire method path (as returned by [current methodpath]), and the actual unknown selector. The default C-level handler, treating the call info as list, resorts to reporting the last element of the list which is always the unknown selector. Custom (ensemble-level, application-level) unknown handler can wrap and further process the information as necessary. To demonstrate the usefulness, I rewrote EnsembleObject->unknown() accordingly. I checked for Tcl_Obj leaks. - Added some tests on objects as targets of alias object parameter. To be continued.

* Hopefully the last big naming change: Instead of writing "C class-object method foo {} {...}" one can write now "C class method foo {} {...}" to define a class method named "foo" for class "C". This naming change became possible by defining XOTcl's "class" (and "superclass") as object parameter only. To change a class of an object o, one has to use "o configure -class NEWCLASS". The term "object-class" looks alien to language beginners, the term "class" is much more straightforward. Changing classes or superclasses is seldomly used by typicall application programs.

For already existing nx scripts, changing "object-class" into

class should be straightforward.

* various documentation updates (migration guide, nx tutorial)
