config/functions: next wave of cleanups #3040

merged 5 commits into from Oct 23, 2018

commented Oct 18, 2018

This series reorganizes and does cleanup on config/functions. Specifically it:

Adds a die() function, as previously seen in the download-cleaner PR.

Reorganizes all functions into groups based on what they do, and when they are referenced. Functions used by other functions -> buildsystem -> package -> kernel package -> addon package -> target configuration. This commit makes no function changes, only location in the file.

Converts which to command -v, and exit calls to die().

Splits check_config() into its individual checks, adds a check_distro(), and does a cleanup pass.

Built without incident for RPi2.

echo -e $check_project
echo -e $distro_err_msg

If you add -e support to die, then can't you combine this so that it becomes die "$distro_err_msg"?

This reorganizes functions based on their purpose as well as strives to declare
a function prior to another function calling it. No changes in how any function
is implemented.

Purpose groupings:

Function - functions that make it easier to implement other functions
Buildsystem - functions around the build environment
Package - functions that work with packages or configure them
Kernel - functions for getting information on the kernel/firmware
Addon - functions around building kodi addons
Target Configuration - Functions that set something up on the target

die is meant to be a more flexible exit, printing a message to go with
the exit call. It works like:

die -- same as "exit 1"
die "It just broke." -- echo statement, exit value 1
die "Tried to do the thing." "2" -- echo statement, exit value 2

Exit codes other than 1 require a message to go with it.

it would replace existing code that looks like:

echo "ERROR: Everything went wrong. Sorry!"
exit 1

or be more helpful in picking up the pieces when something unexpected
happens then:

do_something || exit 1

Take the opportunity to cleanup the check_foobar() too.

Revision pushed. Updated die to use echo -e and to redirect to stderr. Fixed some missing quotes in check_distro. Added a cleanup pass on check_path and check_arch.
