Subject: Re: error in lispworks' #'directory or in my head??? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Wed, 26 Dec 2001 10:05:51 GMT Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Eric Moss <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Python lets me check file-ness or directory-ness or link-ness. Is there | a portable way in lisp? Are fileness, directoryness, and linkness portable concepts? I would expect such things to be part of the operating system interface. Since Common Lisp is more portable than Python, and has a far longer history, the operating systems it has to be portable across are far more numerous. /// -- The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture has taught you.
