/*! \headerfile signal.h <QGlib/Signal>
 * \brief Helper class providing introspection of GObject signals
 * Signals are a generic notification mechanism. Each signal is bound to a
 * certain instantiatable Type and can be emitted on any instance of this type.
 * This class allows you to inspect these signals. You can use the lookup() and
 * listSignals() methods to get a Signal instance. You can then use one of the
 * accessor methods to retrieve information about this signal.
 * This class does not offer methods to emit or connect to signals.
 * To emit or connect a signal, use the QGlib::emit() and QGlib::connect()
 * methods, respectively.
 * For more information, please read the relevant Glib documentation.
 * \sa connect(), emit()

/*! Emits a signal on a specified \a instance with the specified arguments.
 * This method will convert all the specified arguments to GValues using Value::set()
 * and will then emit the signal using g_signal_emitv(). The returned value from the signal
 * (if the signal returns a value) will be converted from GValue to the type R using
 * Value::get() and will be returned. If some argument is not of the type that the signal
 * expects and a conversion is not possible, a warning will be printed to stderr at runtime
 * and the signal will not be emitted. On the contrary, if the return value is not of the type
 * that the signal returns and a conversion is not possible, the signal \em will be emitted,
 * but a default-constructed value for the type R will be returned and a warning will be
 * printed to stderr.
 * Note that since the implementation uses Value::set() to convert the GValues into the
 * specified types, the same rules that apply to Value::set() apply here (i.e. you should
 * only use the types of the bindings and not the C types, which means QGst::ObjectPtr instead
 * of GstObject*, etc...).
 * Emitting a signal is useful for the so-called Action signals. These are meant to be emitted
 * from the application and not connected to. They are more like dynamic methods that can be
 * identified with a string.
 * \note
 * \li This method makes use of C++0x features (namely, variadic templates and rvalue
 * references). If your compiler does not support them, a hacky implementation using boost's
 * preprocessor, function and bind libraries will be compiled instead. That version has a
 * limit of 9 arguments by default. Define QGLIB_SIGNAL_MAX_ARGS to a greater value before
 * including QGlib/Signal if you want to support more arguments.
 * \li This function's name clashes with Qt's emit keyword. To compile it successfully,
 * the headers will undefine Qt's emit and print a warning at compile time. It is recommended
 * that you compile your project with QT_NO_KEYWORDS to avoid this, however note that this
 * means that the "signals", "slots" and "foreach" keywords will also be unavailable under these
 * names (you can use "Q_SIGNALS", "Q_SLOTS" and "Q_FOREACH" respectively). If you do not wish
 * to do that, you can also define QT_NO_EMIT or QGLIB_NO_EMIT_WARNING. The first one undefines
 * Qt's emit completely and the second one supresses the warning and undefines Qt's emit in all
 * the code files that include the QGlib/Signal header. In all cases, to emit Qt signals you
 * will have to use "Q_EMIT" instead of "emit".
 * \param instance The instance of the object on which the signal will be emitted. You can pass
 * a RefPointer as an instance without any problems; it will automatically cast to void*.
 * \param detailedSignal The name of the signal that you want to emit, with an optional
 * detail if the signal is detailed. The detail may be specified with the following syntax:
 * "signal::detail".
 * \param args The arguments that will be passed to the signal.
 * \returns The return value of the signal.
template <typename R, typename... Args>
R emit(void *instance, const char *detailedSignal, const Args & ... args);

/*! \overload
 * This method takes the detail argument as a quark, separated from the signal name.
 * It may be useful if you already have the quark of the detail that you want to specify.
template <typename R, typename... Args>
R emitWithDetail(void *instance, const char *signal, Quark detail, const Args & ... args);
