New auto operator.
Summary: -------- During the Myrcon in September Ori suggested an 'auto' operator that would evaluate what it applies to, store the result in a temporary t, and call __dispose__(t) when the current block exits. This patch implements this idea under the form of a unary operator. This, for instance, allows to have: impl disposable regex# = __dispose__ = {r;} ;; regex.exec(auto std.try(regex.compile("")), "foobar") Like before, it is guaranteed that __dispose__ is called in reverse order of auto appearance. Backward compatibility: ----------------------- Nope. Auto variables are now gone. This should not be a problem, simply rewrite: var auto x = foo() into: var x = auto foo() Implementation: --------------- It largely reuses the code I had written for 'auto' variables but needs a little finer grain tracking because we don't always want to call __dispose__ for *all* auto expression results when leaving a block (some might not be evaluated yet). For example: auto 1 if b -> void ;; auto 2 Only __dispose__(1) must be called when '-> void' is executed. If the block falls through, __dispose__(2) and __dispose__(1) will be called in sequence. TODO: ----- - Err when goto jumps in/out of a block that has auto expressions. - Support auto in patterns. match ... | `std.Some (auto x): ... is essentially rewritten to: match ... | `std.Some (auto x): auto x ... - Test edge cases (e.g., auto in loop condition) Actually, test.
