====== Function DISASSEMBLE ====== ====Syntax==== * **disassemble** //fn// → //**[[CL:Constant Variables:nil]]**// ====Arguments and Values==== * //fn// - an //[[CL:Glossary:extended function designator]]// or a //[[CL:Glossary:lambda expression]]//. ====Description==== The //[[CL:Glossary:function]]// **disassemble** is a debugging aid that composes symbolic instructions or expressions in some //[[CL:Glossary:implementation-dependent]]// language which represent the code used to produce the //[[CL:Glossary:function]]// which is or is named by the argument //fn//. The result is displayed to //[[CL:Glossary:standard output]]// in an //[[CL:Glossary:implementation-dependent]]// format. If //fn// is a //[[CL:Glossary:lambda expression]]// or //[[CL:Glossary:interpreted function]]//, it is compiled first and the result is disassembled. If the //fn// //[[CL:Glossary:designator]]// is a //[[CL:Glossary:function name]]//, the //[[CL:Glossary:function]]// that it //[[CL:Glossary:names]]// is disassembled. (If that //[[CL:Glossary:function]]// is an //[[CL:Glossary:interpreted function]]//, it is first compiled but the result of this implicit compilation is not installed.) ====Examples==== <blockquote> ([[CL:Macros:defun]] f (a) ([[CL:Functions:math-one-plus|1+]] a)) <r>F</r> ([[CL:Functions:eq]] ([[CL:Functions:symbol-function]] 'f) ([[CL:Special Operators:progn]] (disassemble 'f) ([[CL:Functions:symbol-function]] 'f))) <r>//[[CL:Glossary:true]]//</r> </blockquote> ====Side Effects==== None. ====Affected By==== **[[CL:Variables:*standard-output*]]**. ====Exceptional Situations==== Should signal an error of type type-error if //fn// is not an //[[CL:Glossary:extended function designator]]// or a //[[CL:Glossary:lambda expression]]//. ====See Also==== None. ====Notes==== None. \issue{FUNCTION-NAME:LARGE} \issue{DISASSEMBLE-SIDE-EFFECT:DO-NOT-INSTALL} \issue{DISASSEMBLE-SIDE-EFFECT:DO-NOT-INSTALL} \issue{DOCUMENTATION-FUNCTION-TANGLED:REQUIRE-ARGUMENT}
