You are not required to define a variable in order to use it, but
defining it lets you supply an initial value and documentation, which
can be referred to by the Emacs help facilities and other programming
tools.  The `defvar' form also declares the variable as \"special\",
so that it is always dynamically bound even if `lexical-binding' is t.

The optional argument INITVALUE is evaluated, and used to set SYMBOL,
only if SYMBOL's value is void.  If SYMBOL is buffer-local, its
default value is what is set; buffer-local values are not affected.
Pavel Janík's avatar
Pavel Janík committed
722
If INITVALUE is missing, SYMBOL's value is not set.
723 724 725 726 727

If SYMBOL has a local binding, then this form affects the local
binding.  This is usually not what you want.  Thus, if you need to
load a file defining variables, with this form or with `defconst' or
`defcustom', you should always load that file _outside_ any bindings
728
for these variables.  (`defconst' and `defcustom' behave similarly in
729
this respect.)
730 731 732 733 734

The optional argument DOCSTRING is a documentation string for the
variable.

To define a user option, use `defcustom' instead of `defvar'.

SYMBOL is marked as a special variable so that it is never lexically
