Preserving version numbers in NFS
Date: Thu, 1 Oct 1992 09:09 EDT
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Stephen M Jameson)
Is there any way to copy a file from a LMFS to an NFS file system and preserve
version numbers. If you copy a file "foo.lisp.7" from one lmfs directory to
another, it seems in general to do so, so you get "foo.lisp.7" in the other
directory. If you copy the same file to an NFS directory (which has a "*.sct"
somewhere in its pathname), it creates "foo.lisp.~<n+1>~", where n is the
number of previously existing versions of foo.lisp in the directory. Is there
any way to force it to create foo.lisp.~7~.
This is important for being able to copy an SCT system over to an NFS file
server, while preserving the ability to load all previously compiled versions
of the system.
