Subject: Re: Logical pathname hosts. From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1998/12/23 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Raymond Toy <firstname.lastname@example.org> | I don't understand either. It was just a workaround to make it work on | CMUCL. I have no idea if it works on ACL. yes, it works in ACL 5.0. | CMUCL appears to match pretty much what ACL says in these examples. yup, but note that the ACL I have used is slightly patched. the regular version doesn't quite get directory-less logical pathnames right. | So I guess CMUCL just doesn't like an empty part between the host and | the directory. um, that's the specification of a relative pathname, dude. if you start off the directory list with a string, it's absolute. you got the results you should in that test case. the problem is how CMUCL maps the result back to physical pathnames. CMUCL turns a relative logical pathname into a physical pathname relative to the current directory. this is quite extraordinarily silly behavior. #:Erik -- Nie wieder KrF! Nie wieder KrF!
