+.Dt HOOK.LUA 8
+.Os
+.Sh NAME
+.Nm hook.lua
+.Nd FreeBSD hook module
+.Sh DESCRIPTION
+.Nm
+contains functionality for defining hook types and attaching hooks.
+Hooks are functions used to attach custom behaviors at pre-defined points in
+loader execution.
+These pre-defined points are what we refer to as
+.Dq hook types .
+.Pp
+Before using the functionality provided by
+.Nm ,
+it must be included with a statement such as the following:
+.Pp
+.Dl local hook = require("hook")
+.Ss Exported functions
+The following functions are exported from
+.Nm :
+.Bl -tag -width hook.registerType -offset indent
+.It Fn hook.registerType hooktype
+Adds
+.Ev hooktype
+as a recognized hook type.
+This allows functions to be added to run when hooks of this type are invoked
+using
+.Fn hook.runAll hooktype .
+.It Fn hook.register hooktype hookfunc
+Register
+.Ev hookfunc
+to be run when hooks of type
+.Ev hooktype
+are invoked.
+.It Fn hook.runAll hooktype
+Invoke all hooks registered for type
+.Ev hooktype .
+Hooks are invoked in the order in which they are registered.
+.El
+.Ss Hook Naming Guidelines
+Hook names should consist of the name of the module they are defined in, as well
+as a verb describing when the hook is executed, separated by a period.
+For example,
+.Dq config.reloaded
+is defined in the
+.Xr config.lua 8
+module and run when the configuration is reloaded.
+.Sh EXAMPLES
+To register a hook to be run when configuration is reloaded:
+.Pp
+.Bd -literal -offset indent -compact
+local hook = require("hook")
+
+local function configuration_was_reloaded()
+	print("Configuration was reloaded!")
+end
+
+hook.register("config.reloaded", configuration_was_reloaded)

+.Nm
