(defmacro declare-function (fn file &optional arglist fileonly)
"Tell the byte-compiler that function FN is defined, in FILE.
Optional ARGLIST is the argument list used by the function. The
FILE argument is not used by the byte-compiler, but by the
`check-declare' package, which checks that FILE contains a
definition for FN. ARGLIST is used by both the byte-compiler and
`check-declare' to check for consistency.
FILE can be either a Lisp file (in which case the \".el\"
extension is optional), or a C file. C files are expanded
relative to the Emacs \"src/\" directory. Lisp files are
searched for using `locate-library', and if that fails they are
expanded relative to the location of the file containing the
declaration. A FILE with an \"ext:\" prefix is an external file.
`check-declare' will check such files if they are found, and skip
them without error if they are not.
FILEONLY non-nil means that `check-declare' will only check that
FILE exists, not that it defines FN. This is intended for
function-definitions that `check-declare' does not recognize, e.g.
To specify a value for FILEONLY without passing an argument list,
set ARGLIST to `t'. This is necessary because `nil' means an
empty argument list, rather than an unspecified one.
Note that for the purposes of `check-declare', this statement
must be the first non-whitespace on a line, and everything up to
the end of FILE must be all on the same line. For example:
\(declare-function c-end-of-defun \"progmodes/cc-cmds.el\"
\(&optional arg))
For more information, see Info node `elisp(Declaring Functions)'."
