/**
 * @defgroup actions Actions
 * @{
 * Functions that perform an action on a certain system object.
 *
 * Action functions are declared by modules by implementing hook_action_info().
 * Modules can cause action functions to run by calling actions_do(), and
 * trigger.module provides a user interface that lets administrators define
 * events that cause action functions to run.
 *
 * Each action function takes two to four arguments:
 * - $entity: The object that the action acts on, such as a node, comment, or
 *   user.
 * - $context: Array of additional information about what triggered the action.
 * - $a1, $a2: Optional additional information, which can be passed into
 *   actions_do() and will be passed along to the action function.
 *
 * @} End of "defgroup actions".
 */

/**
 * Performs a given list of actions by executing their callback functions.
 *
 * Given the IDs of actions to perform, this function finds out what the
 * callback functions for the actions are by querying the database. Then
 * it calls each callback using the function call $function($object, $context,
 * $a1, $a2), passing the input arguments of this function (see below) to the
 * action function.
 *
 * @param $action_ids
 *   The IDs of the actions to perform. Can be a single action ID or an array
 *   of IDs. IDs of configurable actions must be given as numeric action IDs;
 *   IDs of non-configurable actions may be given as action function names.
 * @param $object
 *   The object that the action will act on: a node, user, or comment object.
 * @param $context
 *   Associative array containing extra information about what triggered
 *   the action call, with $context['hook'] giving the name of the hook
 *   that resulted in this call to actions_do().
 * @param $a1
 *   Passed along to the callback.
 * @param $a2
 *   Passed along to the callback.
 * @return
 *   An associative array containing the results of the functions that
 *   perform the actions, keyed on action ID.
