Hi Michael.

Thanks very much for the work you've been doing and the emails you've
recently sent.  I'm still catching up on my email due to various recent
distractions, hence the delayed reply and the short response, which is also
due to my now being engaged on getting to the bottom of the Windows port
stability problems.

As I'm not sufficiently knowledgable with regard to namestrings/pathnames to
immediately comprehend your suggestion below, I'm going to leave this and
your patches until I can give them the full and detailed attention they

The GCL Lisp code (for example "cmpnew/gcl_cmpmain.lsp") generally seems to
neglect pathname device handling which is understandable given that it was
apparently substantially developed on Unix systems (although I do detect
traces of VMS somewhere in the past).


Mike Thomas.

|   btw: my pathname.d does NOT YET detect a DOS system, and therefore

|   a DOS version of my patch:
|       (set SI:*NAMESTRING-RESOLVE :device)
|       (si:save-system "dos-gcl")
|   please try this - i dont have a DOS system at hand - also test
|   something like (directory #p"c:/foo/*.lisp") after installing
|   my patch on Windoof - the directory defun had to change for
|   both systems, but I was only able to test the Unix/BSD side.
