NAME
       emit - Emit a generic event

   Synopsis
       emit EVENT_NAME [ARGUMENTS...]

   Description
       emit emits, or fires, an event. Events are delivered to, or caught by,
       special functions called event handlers. The arguments are passed to
       the event handlers as function arguments.

   Example
       The following code first defines an event handler for the generic event
       named 'test_event', and then emits an event of that type.

       function event_test --on-event test_event
           echo event test: $argv
       end

       emit test_event something

   Notes
       Note that events are only sent to the current fish process as there is
       no way to send events from one fish process to another.
