The compile compiles the Analytic Information Server generic parse tree {parseTree} argument (normally output from morph) and returns an Lambda object. If the optional {anLambda} argument is passed, it becomes the target of the compilation and is returned; otherwise, a new Lambda object is returned. If the optional true argument is passed, the compilation always inherits the persistent variables of the {anLambda} argument.


Use the compile when producing an Lambda from a parse tree is required. Normally, a three step process will compile Lisp source: lisp, followed by morph, followed by compile.




(compile parseTree)

(compile parseTree anLambda)

(compile parseTree anLambda true)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:parseTree--- An Analytic Information Server generic parse tree (normally output from morph)
Argument:anLambdaLambda Optional Argument. If present, it specifies the target (Lambda) of the compilation. not present, a new Lambda object is returned.
Argument:trueBoolean Optional Argument. If present, the compilation will inherit the persistent variable of the {anLambda} argument.
