r"""Python sandbox implementation for build files.

This module contains classes for Python sandboxes that execute in a
highly-controlled environment.

The main class is `Sandbox`. This provides an execution environment for Python
code and is used to fill a Context instance for the takeaway information from
the execution.

Code in this module takes a different approach to exception handling compared
to what you'd see elsewhere in Python. Arguments to built-in exceptions like
KeyError are machine parseable. This machine-friendly data is used to present
user-friendly error messages in the case of errors.

class Sandbox(dict):
    """Represents a sandbox for executing Python code.

    This class provides a sandbox for execution of a single mozbuild frontend
    file. The results of that execution is stored in the Context instance given
    as the ``context`` argument.

    Sandbox is effectively a glorified wrapper around compile() + exec(). You
    point it at some Python code and it executes it. The main difference from
    executing Python code like normal is that the executed code is very limited
    in what it can do: the sandbox only exposes a very limited set of Python
    functionality. Only specific types and functions are available. This
    prevents executed code from doing things like import modules, open files,

    Sandbox instances act as global namespace for the sandboxed execution
    itself. They shall not be used to access the results of the execution.
    Those results are available in the given Context instance after execution.

    The Sandbox itself is responsible for enforcing rules such as forbidding
    reassignment of variables.

    Implementation note: Sandbox derives from dict because exec() insists that
    what it is given for namespaces is a dict.
