Indenting Printer

Indenting Printer

To handle generating nicely indented output, you can define a class indenting-printer, which wraps around an output stream, and functions that use an instance of that class to emit strings to the stream while keeping track of when it's at the beginning of the line. The class looks like this:

(defclass indenting-printer ()
((out :accessor out :initarg :out)
(beginning-of-line-p :accessor beginning-of-line-p :initform t)
(indentation :accessor indentation :initform 0)
(indenting-p :accessor indenting-p :initform t)))

The main function that operates on indenting-printers is emit, which takes the printer and a string and emits the string to the printer's output stream, keeping track of when it emits a newline so it can reset the beginning-of-line-p slot.

(defun emit (ip string)
(loop for start = 0 then (1+ pos)
for pos = (position #Newline string :start start)
do (emit/no-newlines ip string :start start :end pos)
when pos do (emit-newline ip)
while pos))

To actually emit the string, it uses the function emit/no-newlines, which emits any needed indentation, via the helper indent-if-necessary, and then writes the string to the stream. This function can also be called directly by other code to emit a string that's known not to contain any newlines.

(defun emit/no-newlines (ip string &key (start 0) end)
(indent-if-necessary ip)
(write-sequence string (out ip) :start start :end end)
(unless (zerop (- (or end (length string)) start))
(setf (beginning-of-line-p ip) nil)))

The helper indent-if-necessary checks beginning-of-line-p and indenting-p to determine whether it needs to emit indentation and, if they're both true, emits as many spaces as indicated by the value of indentation. Code that uses the indenting-printer can control the indentation by manipulating the indentation and indenting-p slots. Incrementing and decrementing indentation changes the number of leading spaces, while setting indenting-p to NIL can temporarily turn off indentation.

(defun indent-if-necessary (ip)
(when (and (beginning-of-line-p ip) (indenting-p ip))
(loop repeat (indentation ip) do (write-char #Space (out ip)))
(setf (beginning-of-line-p ip) nil)))

The last two functions in the indenting-printer API are emit-newline and emit-freshline, which are both used to emit a newline character, similar to the ~% and ~& FORMAT directives. That is, the only difference is that emit-newline always emits a newline, while emit-freshline does so only if beginning-of-line-p is false. Thus, multiple calls to emit-freshline without any intervening emits won't result in a blank line. This is handy when one piece of code wants to generate some output that should end with a newline while another piece of code wants to generate some output that should start on a newline but you don't want a blank line between the two bits of output.

(defun emit-newline (ip)
(write-char #Newline (out ip))
(setf (beginning-of-line-p ip) t))
(defun emit-freshline (ip)
(unless (beginning-of-line-p ip) (emit-newline ip)))

With those preliminaries out of the way, you're ready to get to the guts of the FOO processor.
