bool Inkscape::Extension::Extension::check ( void   )  [virtual]

A function to check the validity of the extension.

A boolean saying whether the extension passed the checks This function chekcs to make sure that there is an id, a name, a repr and an implemenation for this extension. Then it checks all of the dependencies to see if they pass. Finally, it asks the implmentation to do a check of itself.
On each check, if there is a failure, it will print a message to the error log for that failure. It is important to note that the function keeps executing if it finds an error, to try and get as many of them into the error log as possible. This should help people debug installations, and figure out what they need to get for the full functionality of Inkscape to be available.
