Common functions that many Drupal modules will need to reference.

Code

function element_info($type) {
  // Use the advanced drupal_static() pattern, since this is called very often.
  static $drupal_static_fast;
  if (!isset($drupal_static_fast)) {
    $drupal_static_fast['cache'] = &drupal_static(__FUNCTION__);
  }
  $cache = &$drupal_static_fast['cache'];

  if (!isset($cache)) {
    $cache = module_invoke_all('element_info');
    foreach ($cache as $element_type => $info) {
      $cache[$element_type]['#type'] = $element_type;
    }
    // Allow modules to alter the element type defaults.
