A question about files :
I created and used a file without specifying its pathname (i.e. "foo.lisp").
I created it and mcl stored it in the root folder of my mcl disk (not the
system disk, btw).
Then I quit mcl and restart. I try to open the file and it fails (because
mcl was looking for it in the ccl folder and not in the root folder).
The difference between the 2 session: the first time I double click on a
mcl document, the second time, I double click on the application.
I know there is a way to control the location of the file (by giving a full
pathname ?), but I'd like to know what happens in my case.
It seems to be probe-file that take the current macintosh folder or
something like that. Nothing is specified in Steele for that case (only the
filename component of the file is given in parameter).
So I think it is the mac behaviour but I did not find it in Inside Mac (I
am not a mac hacker).
I'd like to know what is the standard mac behaviour in such a case.
