#113 closed defect (wontfix)

directory contents

Reported by: alexshinn Owned by: alexshinn
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: WG1 - Core Keywords:


We've decided to add file-exists? and delete-file,
essential for a large class of scripts, but still
have no way to get a list of files in a directory.
Do we want to provide an interface to this?

This is on the WG2 docket, and I have a proposal at DirectoryPortsCowan. DirectoriesCowan is a companion proposal for creating and destroying directories.

Why use ports for this?

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by cowan

Simplicity and uniformity. Gambit uses directory ports, and everyone else has either a shallow version of Posix or else something ad hoc.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
