6.3 API for Installation

The setup/setup-unit library provides raco setup in unit form. The associated setup/option-sig and setup/option-unit libraries provides the interface for setting options for the run of raco setup.

For example, to unpack a single ".plt" archive "x.plt", set the archives parameter to (list "x.plt") and leave specific-collections as null.

Link the options and setup units so that your option-setting code is initialized between them, e.g.:

    (link ...
      [(OPTIONS : setup-option^) setup:option@]
      [() my-init-options@ OPTIONS]
      [() setup@ OPTIONS ...])

6.3.1 raco setup Unit

 (require setup/setup-unit)


and exports nothing. Invoking setup@ starts the setup process.

6.3.2 Options Unit

 (require setup/option-unit)

Imports nothing and exports setup-option^.

6.3.3 Options Signature

 (require setup/option-sig)

setup-option^ : signature
Provides parameters used to control raco setup in unit form.

(verbose)  boolean?
(verbose on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, prints message from make to stderr. The default is #f.

(make-verbose)  boolean?
(make-verbose on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, verbose make. The default is #f.

(compiler-verbose)  boolean?
(compiler-verbose on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, verbose compiler. The default is #f.

(clean)  boolean?
(clean on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, delete ".zo" and ".so"/".dll"/".dylib" files in the specified collections. The default is #f.

(compile-mode)  (or/c path? false/c)
(compile-mode path)  void?
  path : (or/c path? false/c)
If a path is given, use a ".zo" compiler other than plain compile, and build to (build-path "compiled" (compile-mode)). The default is #f.

(make-zo)  boolean?
(make-zo on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, compile ".zo". The default is #t.

(make-so)  boolean?
(make-so on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, compile ".so"/".dll" files. The default is #f.

(make-launchers)  boolean?
(make-launchers on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, make collection "info.rkt"-specified launchers. The default is #t.

(make-info-domain)  boolean?
(make-info-domain on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, update "info-domain/compiled/cache.rkt" for each collection path. The default is #t.

(avoid-main-installation)  boolean?
(avoid-main-installation on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, avoid building bytecode in the main installation tree when building other bytecode (e.g., in a user-specific collection). The default is #f.

(call-install)  boolean?
(call-install on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, call collection "info.rkt"-specified setup code. The default is #t.

(force-unpack)  boolean?
(force-unpack on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, ignore version and already-installed errors when unpacking a ".plt" archive. The default is #f.

(pause-on-errors)  boolean?
(pause-on-errors on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, in the event of an error, prints a summary error and waits for stdin input before terminating. The default is #f.

A list of collections to set up; the empty list means set-up all collections if the archives list is also empty The default is null.

(archives)  (listof path-string?)
(archives arch)  void?
  arch : (listof path-string?)
A list of ".plt" archives to unpack; any collections specified by the archives are set-up in addition to the collections listed in specific-collections. The default is null.

(archive-implies-reindex)  boolean?
(archive-implies-reindex on?)  void?
  on? : any/c
If on, when archives has a non-empty list of packages, if any documentation is built, then suitable documentation start pages, search pages, and master index pages are re-built. The default is #t.

A thunk that returns the target directory for unpacking a relative ".plt" archive; when unpacking an archive, either this or the procedure in current-target-plt-directory-getter will be called. The default is current-directory.

A procedure that takes a preferred path, a path to the parent of the main "collects" directory, and a list of path choices; it returns a path for a "plt-relative" install; when unpacking an archive, either this or the procedure in current-target-directory-getter will be called, and in the former case, this procedure may be called multiple times. The default is (lambda (preferred main-parent-dir choices) preferred).
