This function returns the meaning of @var{function} as a function. If
@var{function} is a symbol, then it finds @var{function}'s function
definition and starts over with that value. If @var{function} is not a
symbol, then it returns @var{function} itself.
This function signals a @code{void-function} error if the final
symbol is unbound and a @code{cyclic-function-indirection} error if
there is a loop in the chain of symbols.
This function signals a @code{void-function} error if the final symbol
is unbound and optional argument @var{noerror} is @code{nil} or

loop in the chain of symbols.
Here is how you could define @code{indirect-function} in Lisp:
