#' Replace a function with a stub.
#'
#' The result of calling \code{stub} is that, when \code{where}
#' is invoked and when it internally makes a call to \code{what},
#' \code{how} is going to be called instead.
#' 
#' This is much more limited in scope in comparison to
#' \code{\link[testthat]{with_mock}} which effectively replaces
#' \code{what} everywhere. In other words, when using \code{with_mock}
#' and regardless of the number of intermediate calls, \code{how} is
#' always called instead of \code{what}. However, using this API,
#' the replacement takes place only for a single function \code{where}
#' and only for calls originating in that function.
#'

#' @name stub

# \code{remote_stub} reverses the effect of \code{stub}.


#' @param where Function to be called that will in turn call
#'        \code{what}.
#' @param what Name of the function you want to stub out (a
#'        \code{character} string).
#' @param how Replacement function (also a \code{\link{mock}} function)
#'        or a return value for which a function will be created
#'        automatically.
#' @param depth Specifies the depth to which the function should be stubbed

#' @rdname stub

#' f <- function() TRUE
#' g <- function() f()
#' stub(g, 'f', FALSE)
#' 
#' # now g() returns FALSE because f() has been stubbed out
