Typecheck the currently running endpoint with a given
namespace HH\Client; function typecheck( string $client_name = 'hh_client', ): TypecheckResult;
caching to hopefully be pretty cheap to call, especially when there are no
errors and the code isn't changing. Relies on
hh_server to poke a stamp
file to say "something has changed" to invalidate our cache.
TODO Areas for future improvement:
- Key the cache by endpoint/hhconfig location, so that we correctly support more than one project per HHVM instance.
- Populate the cache separately from this function, so that typecheck_and_error can have a hot path that just checks "is the world clean" without paying the apc_fetch deserialization cost (which is most of the cost of this function, if I'm benchmarking correctly).
- Storing an array (instead of an object) in APC might be faster, due to the way I think HHVM can optimize COW arrays.
