The semantic patch language supports also to put longer code into SmPL rules.
It might look convenient and appropriate to specify such code for a single
SmPL rule. But it can happen also that you would like to reduce source code
search efforts and present meaningful analysis reports.
It can be specified that a specific function call should be found as
A corresponding hit can be additionally indicated in a variable for
an embedded programming language (like OCaml or Python) in a subsequent script
rule so that this variable can influence a message construction in a final rule.
How are the chances to restart (or continue) the code search after found places
(without repeating SmPL code from the precondition)?
