;;; Commentary:
;; On-the-fly syntax checking for GNU Emacs 24.
;; Flycheck is a modern on-the-fly syntax checking extension for GNU Emacs,
;; intended as replacement for the older Flymake extension which is part of GNU
;; Emacs.
;; Flycheck automatically checks buffers for errors while you type, and reports
;; warnings and errors directly in the buffer and in an optional IDE-like error
;; list.
;; It comes with a rich interface for custom syntax checkers and other
;; extensions, and has already many 3rd party extensions adding new features.
;; Please read the online manual at for more
;; information. You can open the manual directly from Emacs with `M-x
;; flycheck-manual'.
;; # Setup
;; Flycheck works best on Unix systems. It does not officially support Windows,
;; but tries to maintain Windows compatibility and should generally work fine on
;; Windows, too.
;; To enable Flycheck add the following to your init file:
;; (add-hook 'after-init-hook #'global-flycheck-mode)
;; Flycheck will then automatically check buffers in supported languages, as
;; long as all necessary tools are present. Use `flycheck-verify-setup' to
;; troubleshoot your Flycheck setup.

Any syntax checker defined with this macro is eligible for manual
syntax checker selection with `flycheck-select-checker'. To make
the new syntax checker available for automatic selection, it must
be registered in `flycheck-checkers'.
DOCSTRING is the documentation of the syntax checker, for
`flycheck-describe-checker'. The following PROPERTIES constitute
a generic syntax checker. Unless otherwise noted, all properties
are mandatory.
`:start FUNCTION'
A function to start the syntax checker.
FUNCTION shall take two arguments and return a context
object if the checker is started successfully. Otherwise it
shall signal an error.
The first argument is the syntax checker being started. The
second is a callback function to report state changes to
Flycheck. The callback takes two arguments STATUS DATA,
where STATUS is a symbol denoting the syntax checker status
and DATA an optional argument with additional data for the
status report. See `flycheck-report-buffer-checker-status'
for more information about STATUS and DATA.
FUNCTION may be synchronous or asynchronous, i.e. it may
call the given callback either immediately, or at some later
point (e.g. from a process sentinel).
A syntax checker _must_ call CALLBACK at least once with a
STATUS that finishes the current syntax checker. Otherwise
Flycheck gets stuck at the current syntax check with this
syntax checker.
The context object returned by FUNCTION is passed to
`:interrupt FUNCTION'
A function to interrupt the syntax check.
FUNCTION is called with the syntax checker and the context
object returned by the `:start' function and shall try to
interrupt the syntax check. The context may be nil, if the
syntax check is interrupted before actually started.
FUNCTION should handle this situation.
If it cannot interrupt the syntax check, it may either
signal an error or silently ignore the attempt to interrupt
the syntax checker, depending on the severity of the
If interrupting the syntax check failed, Flycheck will let
the syntax check continue, but ignore any status reports.
Notably, it won't highlight any errors reported by the
syntax check in the buffer.
This property is optional. If omitted, Flycheck won't
attempt to interrupt syntax checks wit this syntax checker,
and simply ignore their results.
`:print-doc FUNCTION'
A function to print additional documentation into the Help
buffer of this checker.
FUNCTION is called when creating the Help buffer for the
syntax checker, with the syntax checker as single argument,
after printing the name of the syntax checker and its modes
and predicate, but before printing DOCSTRING. It may insert
additional documentation into the current buffer.
The call occurs within `with-help-window'. Hence
`standard-output' points to the current buffer, so you may
use `princ' and friends to add content. Also, the current
buffer is put into Help mode afterwards, which automatically
turns symbols into references, if possible.
This property is optional. If omitted, no additional
documentation is printed for this syntax checker.
:verify FUNCTION
A function to verify the checker for the current buffer.
FUNCTION is called with the syntax checker as single
argument, and shall return a list of
`flycheck-verification-result' objects indicating whether
the syntax checker could be used in the current buffer, and
highlighting potential setup problems.
This property is optional. If omitted, no additional
verification occurs for this syntax checker. It is however
absolutely recommended that you add a `:verify' function to
your syntax checker, because it will help users to spot
potential setup problems.
`:modes MODES'
A major mode symbol or a list thereof, denoting major modes
to use this syntax checker in.
This syntax checker will only be used in buffers whose
`major-mode' is contained in MODES.
If `:predicate' is also given the syntax checker will only
be used in buffers for which the `:predicate' returns
`:predicate FUNCTION'
A function to determine whether to use the syntax checker in
the current buffer.
FUNCTION is called without arguments and shall return
non-nil if this syntax checker shall be used to check the
current buffer. Otherwise it shall return nil.
If this checker has a `:working-directory' FUNCTION is
called with `default-directory' bound to the checker's
working directory.
FUNCTION is only called in matching major modes.
This property is optional.
`:enabled FUNCTION'
A function to determine whether to use the syntax checker in
the current buffer.
This property behaves as `:predicate', except that it's only
called the first time a syntax checker is to be used in a buffer.
FUNCTION is called without arguments and shall return
non-nil if this syntax checker shall be used to check the
current buffer. Otherwise it shall return nil.
If FUNCTION returns a non-nil value the checker is put in a
whitelist in `flycheck-enabled-checkers' to prevent further
invocations of `:enabled'. Otherwise it is disabled via
`flycheck-disabled-checkers' to prevent any further use of
If this checker has a `:working-directory' FUNCTION is
called with `default-directory' bound to the checker's
working directory.
FUNCTION is only called in matching major modes.
This property is optional.
`:error-filter FUNCTION'
A function to filter the errors returned by this checker.
FUNCTION is called with the list of `flycheck-error' objects
returned by the syntax checker and shall return another list
of `flycheck-error' objects, which is considered the final
result of this syntax checker.
FUNCTION is free to add, remove or modify errors, whether in
place or by copying.
This property is optional. The default filter is
`:error-explainer FUNCTION'
A function to return an explanation text for errors
generated by this checker.
FUNCTION is called with a `flycheck-error' object and shall
return an explanation message for this error as a string, or
nil if there is no explanation for this error.
This property is optional.
`:next-checkers NEXT-CHECKERS'
A list denoting syntax checkers to apply after this syntax
checker, in what we call \"chaining\" of syntax checkers.
Each ITEM is a cons cell `(LEVEL . CHECKER)'. CHECKER is a
syntax checker to run after this syntax checker. LEVEL is
an error level. CHECKER will only be used if there are no
current errors of at least LEVEL. LEVEL may also be t, in
which case CHECKER is used regardless of the current errors.
ITEM may also be a syntax checker symbol, which is
equivalent to `(t . ITEM)'.
Flycheck tries all items in order of declaration, and uses
the first whose LEVEL matches and whose CHECKER is
registered and can be used for the current buffer.
This feature is typically used to apply more than one syntax
checker to a buffer. For instance, you might first use a
compiler to check a buffer for syntax and type errors, and
then run a linting tool that checks for insecure code, or
questionable style.
This property is optional. If omitted, it defaults to the
nil, i.e. no other syntax checkers are applied after this
syntax checker.
`:working-directory FUNCTION'
The value of `default-directory' when invoking `:start'.
FUNCTION is a function taking the syntax checker as sole
argument. It shall return the absolute path to an existing
directory to use as `default-directory' for `:start' or
nil to fall back to the `default-directory' of the current
This property is optional. If omitted invoke `:start'
from the `default-directory' of the buffer being checked.
Signal an error, if any property has an invalid value."

A number denoting the severity of this level. The higher

levels. Defaults to 0.
The severity is used by `flycheck-error-level-<' to
determine the ordering of errors according to their levels.
`:compilation-level LEVEL'
A number indicating the broad class of messages that errors
at this level belong to: one of 0 (info), 1 (warning), or
2 or nil (error). Defaults to nil.
This is used by `flycheck-checker-pattern-to-error-regexp'

`:overlay-category CATEGORY'
A symbol denoting the overlay category to use for error
highlight overlays for this level. See Info
node `(elisp)Overlay Properties' for more information about
overlay categories.
A category for an error level overlay should at least define
the `face' property, for error highlighting. Another useful
property for error level categories is `priority', to
influence the stacking of multiple error level overlays.
`:fringe-bitmap BITMAP'
A fringe bitmap symbol denoting the bitmap to use for fringe
indicators for this level. See Info node `(elisp)Fringe
Bitmaps' for more information about fringe bitmaps,
including a list of built-in fringe bitmaps.
`:fringe-face FACE'
