This module provides a generic way to hook into various BlitzMax commands, and to add support for hooks into your own code.
The following hook ids are currently used by BlitzMax modules:
|FlipHook||A Max2D Flip is about to occur||Null|
|EmitEventHook||An event has been emitted by a call to EmitEvent||A TEvent object|
To hook into any of these functions, use AddHook with the specified hook id and your hook function.
To provide hook support for your own code, use AllocHookId to generate a valid integer hook id somewhere in your program's startup code. Then, when the section of code you would like to be 'hookable' is about to execute, simply call RunHooks with the previously generated hook id and your own custom 'data' object.
Description: Allocate a hook id
Returns: An integer hook id
Function AddHook( id,func:Object( id,data:Object,context:Object )
Description: Add a hook function
Returns: A hook object that can be used with the RemoveHook command.
Information: Add a hook function to be executed when RunHooks is called with the specified hook id.

Function RunHooks:Object( id,data:Object )
Description: Run hook functions
Returns: The data produced by the last hook function
Information: RunHooks runs all hook functions that have been added for the specified hook id.
The first hook function is called with the provided data object. The object returned by this function is then passed as the data parameter to the next hook function and so on. Therefore, hook functions should generally return the data parameter when finished.
Function RemoveHook( id,func:Object( id,data:Object,context:Object )
Description: Remove a hook function
Information: Removes the hook function specified by id, func and context.
