 * Returns a list of currently active modules.

 * generate cached pages).
 *
 * All parameters to this function are optional and should generally not be
 * changed from their defaults.
 *
 * @param $refresh
 *   (optional) Whether to force the module list to be regenerated (such as
 *   after the administrator has changed the system settings). Defaults to
 *   FALSE.
 * @param $bootstrap_refresh
 *   (optional) When $refresh is TRUE, setting $bootstrap_refresh to TRUE forces
 *   the module list to be regenerated using the reduced set of modules loaded
 *   in "bootstrap mode" for cached pages. Otherwise, setting $refresh to TRUE
 *   generates the complete list of enabled modules.
 * @param $sort
 *   (optional) By default, modules are ordered by weight and module name. Set
 *   this option to TRUE to return a module list ordered only by module name.
 * @param $fixed_list
 *   (optional) If an array of module names is provided, this will override the
 *   module list with the given set of modules. This will persist until the next
 *   call with $refresh set to TRUE or with a new $fixed_list passed in. This
 *   parameter is primarily intended for internal use (e.g., in install.php and

/**
 * @defgroup hooks Hooks
 * @{
 * Allow modules to interact with the Drupal core.
 *
 * Drupal's module system is based on the concept of "hooks". A hook is a PHP
 * function that is named foo_bar(), where "foo" is the name of the module
 * (whose filename is thus foo.module) and "bar" is the name of the hook. Each
 * hook has a defined set of parameters and a specified result type.
 *
 * To extend Drupal, a module need simply implement a hook. When Drupal wishes
 * to allow intervention from modules, it determines which modules implement a
 * hook and calls that hook in all enabled modules that implement it.
 *
 * The available hooks to implement are explained here in the Hooks section of
 * the developer documentation. The string "hook" is used as a placeholder for
 * the module name in the hook definitions. For example, if the module file is
 * called example.module, then hook_help() as implemented by that module would
 * be defined as example_help().
 *
 * The example functions included are not part of the Drupal core, they are
 * just models that you can modify. Only the hooks implemented within modules
 * are executed when running Drupal.
 *
 * @see themeable
 * @see callbacks
 */

/**
 * @defgroup callbacks Callbacks
 * @{
 * Callback function signatures.
 *
 * Drupal's API sometimes uses callback functions to allow you to define how
 * some type of processing happens. A callback is a function with a defined
 * signature, which you define in a module. Then you pass the function name as
 * a parameter to a Drupal API function or return it as part of a hook
 * implementation return value, and your function is called at an appropriate
 * time. For instance, when setting up batch processing you might need to
 * provide a callback function for each processing step and/or a callback for
 * when processing is finished; you would do that by defining these functions
 * and passing their names into the batch setup function.
 *
 * Callback function signatures, like hook definitions, are described by
 * creating and documenting dummy functions in a *.api.php file; normally, the
 * dummy callback function's name should start with "callback_", and you should
 * document the parameters and return value and provide a sample function body.
 * Then your API documentation can refer to this callback function in its
 * documentation. A user of your API can usually name their callback function
 * anything they want, although a standard name would be to replace "callback_"
 * with the module name.

 *
 * A maximum of 2 alterable arguments is supported (a third is supported for

 * need to be passed and alterable, modules provide additional variables
 * assigned by reference in the last $context argument:

 *     'foo' => 'bar',
 *   );

 * @endcode
 *
 * Note that objects are always passed by reference in PHP5. If it is absolutely
 * required that no implementation alters a passed object in $context, then an
 * object needs to be cloned:
 * @code
 *   $context = array(
 *     'unalterable_object' => clone $object,
 *   );
 *   drupal_alter('mymodule_data', $data, $context);
 * @endcode
 *
 * @param $type
 *   A string describing the type of the alterable $data. 'form', 'links',
 *   'node_content', and so on are several examples. Alternatively can be an
 *   array, in which case hook_TYPE_alter() is invoked for each value in the
 *   array, ordered first by module, and then for each module, in the order of
 *   values in $type. For example, when Form API is using drupal_alter() to
 *   execute both hook_form_alter() and hook_form_FORM_ID_alter()
 *   implementations, it passes array('form', 'form_' . $form_id) for $type.
 * @param $data
 *   The variable that will be passed to hook_TYPE_alter() implementations to be
 *   altered. The type of this variable depends on the value of the $type
 *   argument. For example, when altering a 'form', $data will be a structured
 *   array. When altering a 'profile', $data will be an object.
 * @param $context1
 *   (optional) An additional variable that is passed by reference.
 * @param $context2
 *   (optional) An additional variable that is passed by reference. If more
 *   context needs to be provided to implementations, then this should be an
 *   associative array as described above.
 * @param $context3
 *   (optional) An additional variable that is passed by reference. This
 *   parameter is deprecated and will not exist in Drupal 8; consequently, it
 *   should not be used for new Drupal 7 code either. It is here only for
 *   backwards compatibility with older code that passed additional arguments
