add-dependent metaobject dependent => unspecified
Arguments and values:
metaobject -- A class or a generic function metaobject.
dependent -- An object.
This generic function adds dependent to the dependents of metaobject. If dependent is already in the set of dependents it is not added again (no error is signaled).
The generic function map-dependents can be called to access the set of dependents of a class or generic function. The generic function remove-dependent can be called to remove an object from the set of dependents of a class or generic function. The effect of calling add-dependent or remove-dependent while a call to map-dependents on the same class or generic function is in progress is unspecified.
The situations in which add-dependent is called are not specified.
