[Gcl-devel] Truename

Hi all.

My understanding is that TRUENAME should complain if passed a filename which
does not exist.  Under Windows GCL, this only partly works (see the
transcript below).

Does this curently work correctly under the Unix ports?


Mike Thomas.

;; This one exists
>(truename (make-pathname :defaults "c:/hello.txt"))


;; This one doesn't, but elicits no failure
>(truename (make-pathname :defaults "c:/non-existent"))


;; This one doesn't, and seems to work correctly
>(truename (make-pathname :defaults "c:/non-existent/"))

Error: Cannot get the truename of #p"c:/non-existent/".
Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Error signalled by EVAL.
Broken at TRUENAME.  Type :H for Help.
