4.2.1 Table Registration

If you plan to manipulate several format tables in the same application, you may want to give them names. This process is called registration. You can register a format table with the register-format-table function. The opposite (un-naming a table, if you prefer) is done with the unregister-format-table function.

Function: register-format-table TABLE NAME &optional FORCE

Register TABLE under NAME (a symbol) and return it.

If a table is already registered under that name, FoCus throws a table-collision error, unless the optional FORCE argument is non-nil.

Function: unregister-format-table NAME

Unregister NAMEd table.
