;;; Commentary:
;;;_* Invoking external commands
;; External commands cause processes to be created, by loading
;; external executables into memory. This is what most normal shells
;; do, most of the time. For more information, see [External commands].
;;;_* Invoking Lisp functions
;; A Lisp function can be invoked using Lisp syntax, or command shell
;; syntax. For example, to run `dired' to edit the current directory:
;; /tmp $ (dired ".")
;; Or:
;; /tmp $ dired .
;; The latter form is preferable, but the former is more precise,
;; since it involves no translations. See [Argument parsing], to
;; learn more about how arguments are transformed before passing them
;; to commands.
;; Ordinarily, if 'dired' were also available as an external command,
;; the external version would be called in preference to any Lisp
;; function of the same name. To change this behavior so that Lisp
;; functions always take precedence, set
;; `eshell-prefer-lisp-functions' to t.
;;;_* Alias functions
;; Whenever a command is specified using a simple name, such as 'ls',
;; Eshell will first look for a Lisp function of the name `eshell/ls'.
;; If it exists, it will be called in preference to any other command
;; which might have matched the name 'ls' (such as command aliases,
;; external commands, Lisp functions of that name, etc).
;; This is the most flexible mechanism for creating new commands,
;; since it does not pollute the global namespace, yet allows you to
;; use all of Lisp's facilities to define that piece of functionality.
;; Most of Eshell's "builtin" commands are defined as alias functions.
;;;_* Lisp arguments
;; It is possible to invoke a Lisp form as an argument. This can be
;; done either by specifying the form as you might in Lisp, or by
;; using the '$' character to introduce a value-interpolation:
;; echo (+ 1 2)
;; Or
;; echo $(+ 1 2)
;; The two forms are equivalent. The second is required only if the
;; form being interpolated is within a string, or is a subexpression
;; of a larger argument:
;; echo x$(+ 1 2) "String $(+ 1 2)"
;; To pass a Lisp symbol as a argument, use the alternate quoting
;; syntax, since the single quote character is far too overused in
;; shell syntax:
;; echo #'lisp-symbol
;; Backquote can also be used:
;; echo `(list ,lisp-symbol)
;; Lisp arguments are identified using the following regexp:
;;;_* Command hooks
;; There are several hooks involved with command execution, which can
;; be used either to change or augment Eshell's behavior.

;; @ The main body of a `let' can contain only one form. Use `progn'
;; if necessary.
;; @ The two `special' variables are `eshell-current-handles' and
;; `eshell-current-subjob-p'. Bind them locally with a `let' if you
;; need to change them. Change them directly only if your intention
;; is to change the calling environment.

;; Eshell runs all of its external commands asynchronously, so that
;; Emacs is not blocked while the operation is being performed.
;; However, this introduces certain synchronization difficulties,
;; since the Lisp code, once it returns, will not "go back" to finish
;; executing the commands which haven't yet been started.
;; What Eshell does to work around this problem (basically, the lack
;; of threads in Lisp), is that it evaluates the command sequence
;; iteratively. Whenever an asynchronous process is begun, evaluation
;; terminates and control is given back to Emacs. When that process
;; finishes, it will resume the evaluation using the remainder of the
;; command tree.
