There is a queue-analysis (which queues analysis for a particular file) and queue-strategy (which queues the execution of a strategy on a term) strategy now, but what I would like is to queue a particular strategy on a different file. A combination of both of these, as it were. I need this to trigger recompilation of files that depend on the file the user is editing.

Nathan designed the queuing interface. Maybe he could comment on this issue?

The simplest option would be to use queue-strategy, as it operates on a term and a project, not on any particular file. For example:

<queue-strategy(|"compile-file", "Compiling..."> "another-file.mylang"

compile-file = 
  ; compile-and-write

If you really need a queue-strategy that gives you the AST (like queue-analysis), you’ll need a combination of both strategies. Basically you’ll re-implement, changing

observer.update(parseController, monitor);


observer.invoke(strategyName, term, project);

Ah, so this is already possible. Good, I’ll look into it.
